Three word wednesday Change

There seems to be a flow of change around me. Driving through the streets of Langley each tree seemed to beg attention. Bright red ones amongst the vibrant orange, brilliant yellow amongst the green! A wonderland of color popping out at me, like a reel from an old childhood view master. I was in awe of the day and how truly blessed we are by Mother Nature. Soon the beauty will fade. In an instant, with the wind of a storm, only barren branches will be left behind. Though they appear dead for a time, behind the dormant stage is a season of hope and abundant future potential. We only need really observe how nature works to know that hope, and possibility are always alive.

All the while I’m thinking when my daughter returns from her trip all the trees will be stripped of color. The appearances will have changed, things may be less attractive, but joy and comfort of home will welcome her. She will feel and see the beauty in that!

Right now it seems the whole world is touting doom and gloom, growing it into a disaster. But as everything changes, those trees still thrive. Maybe we are in a time of renewal. A period of rest, hibernation, reflection, a chance to seek joy and appreciation in the mundane! Maybe we need to regenerate and assess new values, reconnect with our inner spirit and humanity.

Three Word Wednesday! Ache, Difference , Suffer

The end of a cycle

In full bloom

Unaware of their splendor

Clouded with pain of change

A deep ache penetrates

The soul of each branch

Barren and alone,

They suffer the transition

Unaware of springs rejuvenation

Horrified by the conclusion

Disconnected from faith

And expectation,

With desperation and reservation

They succumb to the cold

Of winter and the inevitable

Unaware of the difference

They have made

And will make in the future.
