water, in its depths

holds mysteries of eons

secreted stories shipwrecked

ages of allegories in algae

yet retains no resentments


trees, branched and leafed

conceal ringing tales

of history and seasons

drought, flood or plenty

yet seal no future fates


birds, feathered emissaries

carry generational geolocation

wing thousands of miles

to nesting grounds unknown

yet fly without animus


in nature’s timeless cycles

survival o’er centuries

bequeaths wisdom unfettered

hearts, though gravely hobbled

soar upward after all

  1. That, is how the cycle of life works, the broken will be fixed, and the dead, will eventually come back to life again (in plants only though…), and, the rest of us just, keep carrying on…


  2. This is really beautiful! As usual!
    It reminded me of an ancient Persian proverb, I wish I could remember the author. But it’s something like, ‘After all this time, the sun never says to the earth, “you owe me”. See what happens with a love like that. It lights up the whole sky’.
