WHAT HAS BEEN…

ECCLESIASTES

the older I get
the more I know, that
this old world
won’t change its ways
what now is, always was
tumult
kindness
love
hate
all mixed up
and going nowhere
ebb and flow
of ocean tides
under the moon

What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new
under the sun

sunrise
sunset
and all that is in between
days
months
seasons
dust to dust

and even those who are yet to come
will not be remembered
by those who follow…

A TIME TO PLANT…

‘Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them….’

from Ecclesiastes 12, Holy Bible

‘To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.  A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted.’  Ecclesiastes 3:1
