Life Reflections

by Bucketlist

We are close to nature by life cycle
As this year draws to a close,
I am reminded of the end of a cycle
This is the thought that arose

There's beauty and grace in the winter
The final stage of our physical life
This tree has had a life cycle full
of richness, productivity, and strife

When I saw this tree captured scene
I was fascinated by the connections
Reminded how in the final stage
We are alone with our reflections

The tree became an art design for me
A replica of what we go through
It's once fruitful contribution to life
A barren shell of what it could do

Reflections of our time past
Now, while life goes on around
Once valued, now aesthetic in art
it's effect on me was profound
