Life is Just a Wave

entry picture

We watch the transient nature

Of energy in a wave or ripple

And the short life of smaller things,

We notice them change only because

They have a shorter life-cycle than us.


We observe the permanent nature

Of cold inanimate objects

And the long life of bigger things,

We do not notice them change because

They have a longer life-cycle than us.


But all energy fails and expends

As forces rise, prevail and fall,

All life grows, evolves and ends

Obeying nature’s call.


Even rocks and continents

Cannot escape the doom,

They crumble back in essence

To dust from whence they came.


As the waves break on the shore

So must life cease from breath,

The wave of energy is no more

Expended on the shore of death.

Waves not little solar systems indeed. On the movement of time: Even rocks melt (well ripple anyway) and trees (given the opportunity) creep across the landscape. Good post Roy. Tommy

Perfectly timed for the time of year to get us
thinking on the passing essence of life - with
a neat conclusion to round it off.

last stanza brings this full circle, Roy. Really enjoyed this.
