Seasons

by Mark Seaman


Seasons come and seasons go
Rain, Sun, Leaves, and Snow

The world orbits the sun and tilts on its axis
Creating inevitable yet predictable change
And yet the seasons are filled with surprise
Will it be a hot summer or a cold winter?
Even the trend will not fully yield its power
It defies our desire to control or predict

Seasons come and seasons go
Rain, Sun, Leaves, and Snow

Our lives orbit the world we live in and cause us to tilt
Creating inevitable yet predictable change
And yet the seasons are filled with surprise
Will it be a volatile youth or a bitter aging?
Even the trend will not fully yield its power
It defies our desire to control or predict

Seasons come and seasons go
Rain, Sun, Leaves, and Snow

Youth, Adult, Mid-life, Senior
Longing for Belonging
Driven to Succeed
Questioning the Purpose of it all
Seeking Enlightenment

Life has a pattern
But the pattern does not prevent surprise
It defies our desire to control or predict

Seasons come and seasons go
Rain, Sun, Leaves, and Snow
