The Battle


Spring pounces upon a tired Winter

I feel her energy in my veins

Even as he turns the winds against her

Trying to usher in a second kingdom

But she is strong

The sunshine is her ally

As am I.




If there were not days shrouded in mystery,

Questions without answers,

A future enveloped in uncertainty,

What reason would we have to live?


With no hand to hold,

No destiny to see,

No plans carved in stone,

We embrace the fullness of life.


Dancing on the winds of fate,

Knowing that such winds can bring us anywhere –

Careening down to darkness in the beat of a heart,

But soaring to new heights of joy in the blink of an eye.
