Contrasts

12 June 2017

Days of one’s life flow ever onward

Journeys to and fro never ending

From the harshness of winter 

Invaded by frigid temperatures

Trees stark and tall

Beauty desolate 

People bundled, layer upon layer

Every inch of skin covered

Hidden from the invading cold

 

To the warmth of tropical breezes 

Where one walks in the sunshine

Only sandals on one’s feet

Tree lined walk ways

Green and beautiful

Move softly in the gentle breeze

Sounds of planes in the distance 

Like birds in the sky
