Picture Prompt 1 - A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words Competition

It’s all so temporary.
As days disappear on silent wings
The patterns of cause and effect
are rarely seen
during the cyclical phases of life.

Leaves fall and are swept away.
The wind howls loudly on dusky days.
And when the sun shines again
-- as it did when we met --
you’ll no longer be here.

Each second flutters aimlessly.
But too quickly to catch.
(I’d hold your hand
if it would make a difference.)

But time cannot be frozen.
No permanence is gained.
We embrace the here and now.
And focus on each incremental change.
