Winter melts to spring
blooms to summer
fades to fall
turns to winter
Nature keeps for itself
neither beauty nor decay
it ever lets go
as a flower sheds its petals
to summon the seeds
falling to the ground
to bring forth new life.

smiles..nature has much to teach us…if only we watch her…smiles….true that…
i think we can learn a lot from nature…yeah..she knows that letting go births new life…keeps nothing for herself…i like the turn from letting go to giving as well..
This is a beautiful poem. The ‘circle of life’ must happen.
I like this metaphor for letting go…wonderful.
This is beautiful – letting go is part of the cycle of life, and without letting go, there can be nothing new.
so true it is a rolling education
There’s something so very comforting about the reoccurring cycles of nature that we can count on! Every time I visit your blog, Imelda, I get a huge urge to write for Promptly. Hopefully I can get something up soon. I love your short poems. Simple, meaningful, and enjoyable.
And even the decay is very beautiful. But harder when one has a definite personality. Thanks. k.
Ahhh the nature’s cycle is very much of life. One goes out, another one comes in. Hope springs eternal, indeed.
