Do not yearn for eternal summer
For it will burn your heart empty
When seeking to maintain its peak.
Much stronger is the fire internal
witnessed during the darker days.
As the Earth cycles
So are we.
Nothing stops and nothing stays the same
The rise and fall of life is necessary
For the variety is a tool of awareness.
Decay is transformation just as blooming is.
Without rest in death
There’s no seedling or reaching for the open.
There’s no lessons learnt in expectation of what might be.
There’s no mystery if dwelling in one place and same.
We must go places uncomfortable, dark, cold.
Do not yearn for eternal summer,
As winter is full of shine just as much.
A different kind, mute and murky
Dark but rich
Quiet yet wise.
Immerse in the darkness of each year with surrender
For the only way forward is through.
