By John Cannon

Though yesterday we walked in shirtsleeves

into the greening fields

amidst the flowering trees

listening to the bright songs

of returning summer birds,

Today we wake to a skim of ice on our pond

and a dusting of pure white snow ―

nothing dramatic or traumatic,

just Mother Nature’s gentle reminder

that nothing can be taken for granted,

that renewal is a work in progress,

that the only constant

is change.
