Seeing the News of Arctic type weather conditions especially across Europe as temperatures fall to dramatic levels of -39 deg C below Zero. And seeing how ill equipped many find themselves in dealing with harsh weather which has led to many falling victim to the freezing conditions. I sat looking through my own window this weekend looking at the snow fall which for us wasn’t half as bad as last years fall..
But I got to thinking about Mother Nature and her Seasons, and how we all of us have our own Seasons of Life and as the Evening drew in and the Mist rolled in with it.. these words were what came as I put Pen to Paper..
Blizzards of snow in Icy blasts
Falls from the sky like shards of glass
Biting your face and taking your breath
Temperatures plummet bringing Icy death
Gone is the beauty of softly formed flakes
Drifting and freezing on rivers and lakes
Branches that bend and twigs that do snap
All who go out pull on mittens and hat.
But what of the birds? What warmth so they find?
Huddled together in shrub tangled vines
And what about Fox held up in his den
And all our four-legged, what of them?
Do you give them a thought? Do you give them a crumb?
Have you spared a thought? For our Animal Kingdom
And what of the homeless who sleep on our streets
Have you thought of their plight as you sleep neath warm sheets?
Winter is harsh as it culls out the weak
And the mist rolls in closer even as I speak
Seasons are our barometers of life
Like the elements of Nature combining love and strife
There’s the Spring with new growth and birth
As we push on upward seeking self worth
Summer is the garden of beauty and play
As we experience the colour of life every day
Autumn are the years we mature and let go
Like the leaves from a tree we float with the flow
Winter can be a lonely place and cold
Holding Seasons memories as we grow old.
So whatever the weather of storms in Life
Hold onto your heart the Sun of all Light
Fill yourself up with gratitude and love
By loving each other, we ascend up above..
Please hold a thought for all who are affected by the elements of Mother Nature.. Whether it be through snow, Flood, Drought or Earth quakes… And lets not forget to send out our thoughts to the Animal Kingdom who too are suffering the affects not only of Nature.. But the affects of Man as we Pollute and Poison their environments..
