Life is a constant series of awakenings,
Beginning again,
Having a fresh go at it.



Every dawn brings with it a fresh opportunity
for happiness,
Every season another cycle of growth.



The old and finished falls away,
Duff, always feeding the soil of creativity. 



The new bursts into becoming,
Being, finding its own way.



The roots may grow old,
But the leaf and blossom
Continually re-new themselves.



Cloaked in pristine promise,
After slumber, comes a new awakening.
Woodland Gnome 2018

Weekly Photo Challenge:  Awakening



“The universe is always delivering to us
what we need
for a spiritual awakening.”
