Nature's Prayer

I must believe that spring will come
although the winter's just begun
and isolation seems complete
still cycles move, and themes repeat

yet still beneath the icy layers
a seed unborn, like nature's prayer
awaits the warmth of summer sun
that always comes when winter's done

if I can but hang on to this
unfolding rose that blooms in bliss
of warmth and sunshine brought to be
by the cycles of eternity
