To Cherish — Change — Sunrise — Headless Now — Lyrical Prose

To cherish:

it’s now fully summer, solstice passed, and even now light is diminishing by a fraction each morning, not yet noticed by eyes, but I know that everything is continuously changing and another season is approaching. No season stands apart from another. There is a sense of sadness to this seasonal motion that causes me to appreciate these summer all the more, cherishing them in recognition of their briefness. I have no idea how many of them I have left to enjoy, none of us do, and this alone is reason for me to love each moment’s warmth as it passes.

and I do.

if asked of my summer plans, this will be my answer -

to cherish.

~

Peace, Eric
