Shades of bright pink–
magenta, fuchsia, cerise–
through a sea of gray, peek,
a reminder that soon it will be spring.
In the shroud of fog and mist
that seems to perpetually persist,
nature refuses to statically subsist;
every cloud will again disperse or lift.
Time was constructed with the condition of motion
with clauses that require stages of hibernation;
every living thing needs rest and recuperation.
Time ticks on at the same rate; speed is but perception.
Fill the moments wisely with balance,
tenderly caring for each personal aspect.
Mind, body, and soul are both one and separate;
each undergo necessary, natural occurrences.
Embrace each season that inevitably occurs;
even the cold, the dark, the thorns, the spurs
have their purpose in the slows and the stirs.
We are nature within, designed this way by our Creator.
This too shall pass: it’s happening for a reason.
Let’s not be in a hurry for every next season.
This moment now is infused with more than you can know.
We are not meant to understand, only to continue to evolve,
We will reach the sun when we are meant to.
Side by side or entwined, let us together bloom.
No hurry, no need to be bold;
we can take our time, be led by
the whispers of our souls.
