This is the forest within

This is the forest within:
bright with promise,
dark with shadows;
radiant with color,
quiet with strength;
green now, soon brown
then green again.
It's all so busy and complex,
and yet so simple:
some things bloom and die
and bloom again;
others blossom and fade,
never to return. 
Delight in each, enjoy what's now;
gently mourn what's lost
and trust in the lush growth to come...
