This morning there was definitely no denying it;
The cocoon of night takes a little longer to release its charge!
(for a while at least!)
Because this mom is off on mat-leave
as they anticipate Baby arriving soon!
So no matter where we are in life
one thing to remember is that everything
(for better or worse) is but a season!
the flower in full bloom soon sheds its vibrant shades!
Time hoists its elemental plume...
Like a cocoon, dark night enfolds
The wing-span of the sky
Until morning soft sheds its hold
And frees dawn’s butterfly
Time hoists its elemental plume
Upon a transient wick
Where the hour, now in full bloom
Is soon cut to the quick
We should seek to spend carefully
Time's momentous parade
And redeem, ever prayerfully
Each day the Lord has made
For what appears to disappear
Into vaults of thin air
Is being recorded, my dear
Beyond time's vapour flare
...where we will give detailed account
For sparks that upward fly
Then, live today as if time's fount
Is about to run dry
