October 20th: Temporary {LIKE TREE_31days of writing challenge}

each season is important

                                but also temporary

every stage a valuable lesson

                               but also temporary

the soft verdant hope of spring, arriving on warm earth scents and poking pastel colors through the brown

                                     but it is temporary

the long stretch of routine schedules interrupted, days long of yellow sun  green earth blue waters

                                      but it is temporary

in a blink a welcome chill, sweaters and soups and our breath in the early morning light

                                           but it is temporary

the weekends fill up, schedules are booked, your credit card is maxed, there is a tree in the living room and your pants won’t zip

                                      but it is temporary

s l o w…a new year at hibernation pace, clean slates, green smoothies, and labeled plastic totes twinkle at us, invite us in after the glitz and feasting

                                      but it is temporary

the old man in full swing, a curmudgeon with a cold, does anyone remember what the sun looked like?

                                      but it is temporary

the soft verdant hope of spring, arriving on warm earth scents and poking pastel colors through the brown….

season in

season out

ying

&

yang

“there is nothing new under the sun”

in all this repeat and sameness

there is a pulse

a spark

a variety

none the less

a song sung over us

the river of life pouring through us

sweetens the sound

refreshes the routines

the familiar in family

our great GOD

Who is not temporary

Cheers
