Paradoxes of Life (Sonnet)

The rain washes, it also refreshes;

cold skies bring out the most brilliant of stars.

Mountainous effort, this moment passes;

the progress you've made feels so very far.

Life’s paradox is presence and stillness,

forward momentum and passage of time.

Savor these moments; bear to their witness,

like breath, they peak high in life's uphill climb.

Planting and fruiting, harvest progresses

seeds germinate in the soil below.

Dark skies and thunder belie successes;

stillness of air brings a fresh outlook now.

Treks to the future cannot be undone;

sun warms the heart in this new morn begun.
