You see life cycles

when you pay attention

to a garden —browning 

leaves and curling petals,

the tender buds guarded

until the blooming—

a parallel to our living,

the way each day

moves into evening,

opening and closing,

new life and death,

and we find meaning

in the dark night

when we have time

to keep vigil,

finding ourselves

in dreams,

drifting into

an unconscious

awareness —

we are more

than bone

and skin.
