The Changing Seasons of Life

The wind on my face

Cold and harsh

Clear November sky

Autumn arrives in force

The sun is warm

Until shadowed by clouds

Dry leaves scurry

Across cold cement

Barren trees take shape

Few leaves remain

Clinging to distant memories

Of a green summer

That has since passed

“Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.” – Daniel 2:20-21 (NIV)

    And, I like the picture with it.
