Do not yearn for summer

Do not yearn for eternal summer

For it will burn your heart empty

Seeking to maintain its peak

Much stronger is the fire internal

witnessed during the darker days

The earth cycles

And so are we

Nothing stops and nothing stays the same

The rise and fall of life is necessary

For the variety is a tool of awareness

Decay is transformation just as blooming is

Without rest in death

There’s no seedling or reaching for the open

There’s no lessons learnt in expectation of what might be

There’s no mystery if dwelling in one place and same

We must go places uncomfortable, dark, cold

Do not yearn for eternal summer, as winter is full of shine just as much

A different kind, mute and murky

Dark but rich

Quiet yet wise

Immerse in darkness of each year with surrender

For the only way forward is through
