kb circle of lifeART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©

The glory of a brilliant flower is facing its final days,

At first it pushed its way through the soil as a tiny sprout,

Each day it grew into a plush ad beautiful plant.

The blossoms that once graced her have now fallen away,

Leaving a colorful stalk of leaves,

Summer has taken its toll on her as she wilts under the hot sun,

Soon she will shrivel and die,

Much like us,

We come into this world, pushing our way through a tiny canal,

Screaming as we enter life,

We grow, we mature into individual beings with something unique to offer,

As summer comes, we have come to the pinnacle of our growth,

In autumn, we give the world our best impression,

By coloring it with our talents, abilities and knowledge,

Our last hurrah of sorts,

When Winter arrives,

Our bodies begin to falter,

Our hearing wanes, our eyesight fades, our skin loses its luster,

We struggle to survive, but death does not escape us,

We all die,

It’s a fact of life,

But for those who believe that God has prepared a new paradise for us,

Life never ends,

Like the plant that drops its seeds back into the soil and lives to see another day,

We too will continue the circle of life,

An eternal life that lasts forever.
