There are chapters of life that feel like summer evenings

Some that linger like the never-ending chill of winter

Others that transition us like autumn to the next phase

Whirlwind chapters that spring upon us in fleeting bursts,

All offering new insights, reinforcing the old

Some forever imprinted onto the chambers of our hearts

Others so painful they creep upon us from banished places.

Perhaps we all wish we could stay on the peaceful page

But life beckons us to keep moving, even in our resistance,

Throwing at us both summers and winters without rhyme

Teaching us by force to adapt, learn, evolve to a higher level

So that we can weather through the upheaval of change

To immerse ourselves in the joy of dreamy summers.
