Decay and Renewal (Poetry)

Artwork by: Vincent Cacciotti

Decay and renewal…
Watching the water flow with life
Collecting dead tree branches
Branches transformed into a damn by the beaver
To sustain their own life that the tree now lacks

Decay and renewal…
Lightning bugs embodying life
Lighting bolts striking it down
Birds chirp for impermanent mates
Reproducing impermanent seeds awaiting their same fate

Decay and renewal…
The stars we shoot for will one day cease to shine
The star that gives us life won’t forever caress the hills of the east in the early dawn
It is the flow of nature…
An eternal decay and renewal

-Jon Chambers
