The tide rises, and then gradually diminishes in intensity.

Like a river, the sea recedes,

Only to gain momentum for a greater mass.

Leaves drop from their foliage

And return to their natural roots.

Even a heart of greed will one day blossom,

Into a sea of love. Everything eventually subsides;

Everything eventually blossoms.

In quest of its own self-transcendence,

The Cosmic Will commands the night to fade,

And guides the Light through shadows.

Everything eventually subsides; again,

Everything eventually blossoms.

-Manatita 9th February, 2014. Copyrighted.

      Hello, I see that you are a writer of poetry and seeker of spirit yourself! I am pleased to make your acquaintance. I have not been active on HubPages lately but see that you are friends with some of my friends here, and I am not surprised. :-)

      This poem is lovely and wise. I appreciate its acceptance of light with shadow, life with death. Many blessings to you! ~Lurana
