The Ever-Changing Rhythms of Life (Poem)

By Les Henson.

The sky is blue

the sun is shining

quietly the wind blows the clouds

slowly across the ever-changing sky

the brightness is slowly encompassed

by the ever-growing darkness of life.

The day is ending

the darkness comes

with ever-increasing strength

a darkness so penetrating

that life itself fades into the frosty shadow

of the encircling gloom.

The sun begins to rise

the darkness that holds life in its grip

slowly dissipates beneath the warmth

of the sun’s life-giving rays

darkness and light mingle together

in the dance of the forever changing rhythms of life.
