CIRCLE OF LIFE

ORIGINAL ART & 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.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

  1. This was a beautiful story of redemption. Yes, it got a little maudlin in the middle, but accurate at any rate. Thanx, Kathy.
