Although there is a chance of snow in the forecast next week,
daylilies are sprouting,
Robins are hunting worms,
and grass is turning green after being buried in snow.
All are signs of the promise of spring after a brutal winter.
Therefore, I am hopeful.
Seasons come and go like clockwork.
Winter passes with the promise
of warmer spring days in the future
and new life dawning.
The cyclic nature of seasons reminds me of life.
The heat of summer with its happiness and joy
followed by the spectacular colors of fall.
As the temperatures drop
fall colors fade and flowers die.
The earth prepares
for the long dark nights of winter
when we grieve the warmth and colors of summer
while the earth is frigid and life seems barren.
But eventually, if we wait patiently
the grief of winter
gives way to
the joy of spring!
Life is cyclic like the seasons
with its ups and downs.
We triumph and fail,
laugh and cry,
love and grieve.
But if we ride the waves,
realize that cycles come and go,
and never give up,
joy is just around the corner –
just like the promise of spring!
