Death to Life

As the days grow older
The world grows younger,
It limps from death to life.

Colors push back the grey
And the burial shroud is
Removed. From the heights
Fickle snow floats to earth,
Like umbrellas awaiting
The rain. (It lingers for
A moment then melts with
The sun). Nature returns
To its fullest form:

Charcoal clouds turn to
White, lined with a
Golden hue. Stems
Break through the
Lifeless plane and
Leaves peer through
Their branches. The
Dismal mountain
Revisits its lively youth.
The feeble breeze is
Revived by a thriving
Warmth. Cold rains
Usher in the glorious
Sun and a comet beats
In the heart of Aries.

The Labyrinth is laid
Stone by stone on the ground.
A new journey has begun;
A new era has been born.
