A Year of Poems – Day 171

Every ending is a beginning
And every beginning starts with an end
A breath begins each second of life
Ending the contemplation of previous seconds
Every preface contains an epilogue
And every epilogue opens more doors than it closes
A plant grows throughout a long season
Reaching its fullness with a fruit
Which is itself an ending rich and sweet
Bearing the weight of the dry season
And filled with the rich rain
Yet every fruit contains a thousand stories
Waiting to be planted in the earth
To end is to begin and to begin is to change the world forever
For with every fruit, breath, and epilogue
The world begins anew,
Changed forever by each complete story.
