Vibrance ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #266

 Recall the vibrance
Once displayed in many hues
Now no more than trace remains
Though brightness scattered
Here and there

Decay sets in
Drains true nature
Of its lifely due
Thus am I left
With naught but mem’ries

Fading fast

Remiss this guard
Of summer past
Which lingers still
In so few leaves
Fallen to the forest floor

There soon enough
Back to earth
Will they be drawn
And all that was
Will then be gone

The First Star

Through the clouds
Came first a star
Not enough
To break the spell
Of long dark night
But still a light
Come beckoning

Then soon I saw
Another star
Another then
Now several more
The mother bear
Who points the way
To guiding light

Now clears the sky
The night reveals
A sky of lights
Infinite
And always there
Beyond the clouds
Or light of day
The lights of suns

Emergent ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #232

Sometimes the flow of events
Runs across the prevailing currents
Revealing both in high relief

Some will argue for the flow
Some will argue for the current

I remind myself

Step back to appreciate the whole
Evaluate the emergent patterns

Given an opportunity to observe
Beyond the confines of existing paradigms
Seek the possibility of a new way
