Paradoxes of Life (Sonnet) - REVISED
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.
