Natural Awakenings Jacksonville-St. Augustine

The Cycle

Oct 29, 2021 09:30AM ● By Brian Dean
A leaf falls from a tree.

It softly hits the ground and rests.

Over the winter, change begins.

The leaf is changed, reformed, restructured.

It reaches a stage where it is repurposed.

The remnants of the leaf seep into the soil.

And as the spring approaches, 

the leaf becomes food for the tree

from whence it fell.

Seeds are planted.

The tree is strengthened

and gives birth to new life, new leaves.

And so is the cycle of life.

As we live and then die,

we plant seeds.

These seeds are in many forms,

ideas, belief, energies and deeds.

Through this, the cycle of life continues.

The body of humankind grows and strengthens

as the energy of one generation and the next

adds to and strengthens the core of all there is.

That is the energetic cycle of life.
