Circle of Life

Living a prim life

laden with convention

overloaded with expectations

heavy with intention

Now in old age

stripped of life

nothing remains

limbs cut with a knife

Then a miracle comes

surrounded by streaks of light

time for rebirth

leaving the night

Swirled with regeneration

new leaves begin to grow

energizing light surrounds me

my spirit begins to glow

The land around me

changes from sand to grass

misty rain flows through the wind

a rainbow projects using rain drops as glass

Birds building a nest

songs in the air

small animals playing

all nature is aware

From death to life

there is no end

the circle continues to expand

filled with love and friends
