Nature Loves Cycles

Nature loves cycles

They come by design

Built in to our blood

Sleep cycles and life cycles

Day to night to seasons.

Life, death, rebirth.

The circle of life

Comes again and again.

On that we can depend.

It might not look like what we want.

Our messes have consequences.

Bugs could inherit the earth.

But life will continue in some form.

Will we nurture the diversity of life?

Will we help nature and ourselves be well?

Our choices and time will tell.

With each new day and each new night,

We have a chance to love life.

And on a lighter note: Carly Simon Sings “Coming Around Again” with the “Itsy Bitsy Spider.”

Thanks to our host, Linda Hill, for the opportunity to offer today’s prompt.

  1. Nature has that in common with mankind. Everyone and everything follows some ind of cycle

  2. Thank you for the prompt and post! Of course, I had already prepared a post so didn’t write on the prompt for #JusJoJan but, as you know, I’m such a rebel! πŸ˜‰

  3. Yes. Nature loves cycles. Life, death, rebirth is a good example. Thank you 😊🌍

  4. Nature is a cycle, as is the balance in our bodies and the way we keep coming back to the same point on our inner circle before moving onto another unique motion. Love the way your poem captures these rhythms!

    • Thank you, Jaya. I appreciate your insight. It leads me to think about how we need consistency – things we can depend on – to be ready to move forward. That has certainly been true in my relationships.

  5. Your prompt was very apt for me today.

  6. Meaningful and thought provoking

  7. If we look closely at nature we have a ready made blue print to lead our lives exactly the way it does.

    Lovely poem and post JoAnna. ❀

  8. Thank you for sharing!!.. β€œChange is the law of life. And those who look only to the past and present are certain to miss the future.” (John F. Kennedy)… πŸ™‚

    Until we meet again..
    May your day be touched
    by a bit of Irish luck,
    Brightened by a song
    in your heart,
    And warmed by the smiles
    of people you love.
    (Irish Saying)
