A longing for renewal (please see description) by

A longing for days gone,
Of a vitality lost,
When he was young, wild, robust and green,
Filled with life and so alive,
Indulged by the sun
And caressed by the wandering breezes,
Amidst these
Invigorating green surroundings

Now, he awaits
The onset of the inevitable,
The deterioration, decay & decomposition
Of a structure
That once served him so well,
The beginning
Of another cycle, perhaps
Of generation, growth & composition;
Oh, to be born
To re-live those moments again
Is to long
To be renewed by death.

" As long as there is this ‘thirst’ to be and to become , the cycle of continuity goes on."
- from “What the Buddha Taught” by Dr. Ven. Walpola Rahula

“To longing and the end of it.”

What inspires me is the feeling or emotion we are able to capture and convey either through words, an image, or both.The ‘pictures’ we evoke more than the seen. They would better communicate who, what, or where I am now. It is through them that we are ultimately going to “see’ each other. It is through them that we may connect. I look forward to the connection.

Some of my ‘music’ can be heard at

    Wonderful picture nicely done nice texture and detail wonderful colour and framing a fav Wonderful write up as well hugs

    Things we see in nature as well if nature could talk it does in a way silently or sometimes what we hear like the howling of the winds or the roaring of the waves chirping of the birds. ect..But we can see in nature the crys of decay happening the crys when u see the trees dying and other things as well its sad and we need to take care and treasure these things we need to wake up and not take things for granted..Oh to be reborn and live those moments again in people appreciating all that they have in appreciating nature around us before it is gone and then wished they would have taken the time hugs..Wonderfuly written a fav..
    Peace Love for all things.hugs

  • “Change is inherent in all things”. Those are some very poetic thoughts indeed Bonita!! Not only “before it is gone” but before we are gone too. And there is no time left for us to take either. :) Thank you Bonita! Appreciate very much your thoughts on this!! Hugs

  • This dying plant was the inspiration for the poem. It seemed oh so lonely and melancholic, withered and dry, amidst those rich green surroundings. One could almost hear its “longing”. :) Thank you so much Anna! Appreciate very much your thoughts on this and the support you give my work!

    this reminds me of the end of John’s life, he had mentioned that while there was still life in him he was useful but that his heart longed to be home with the Savior. I use to tell my mom this when she didn’t know what her purpose was anymore as she was bed ridden. I told her as long as she was breathing, she could witness to the young people with her smile and wonderful attitude. We all do have that longing to be renewed.

  • That’s very thoughtful and comforting of you Viv! And very positive too!! I guess the longing for renewal is in everything; of life seeking life. And also of being renewed emotionally, psychologically or spiritually!! Thank you so much Viv!! Appreciate very much the thoughts you have shared on this!!

    The perfect mate for your very beautiful and profound write….
    Full of hope and tree of life…

  • Not just mate but the inspiration too!! :)) He seemed rather melancholic, silently awaiting his fate, when I found him on this peak with him not in his peak. Like the aged in a retirement home. “Tree of life” it is. Thank you Gena! Appreciate very much your warm thoughts on this!!
