Peaks and Valleys

There may be a reason why Providence or Evolution (depending on which theory you may subscribe to) has structured the Earth to have peaks and valleys. For all of us, life has straight throws and curveballs, its ups and downs. As Clark from The Wakefield Doctrine wisely says, life is a mix of experiences that makes us who we are. Life gives us a lot to be thankful for, no matter its peaks or valleys.

Peaks and Valleys

The long roads meander, lead to valleys deep
Land not dry or barren; water from rocks seeps

Trees with leaves not withered, but with leaves pure green
Soil not rough or arid, but moist, with darkened sheen

Water not in single, listless pools that stay ever so still;
But in a quiet stream that flows, though moves along at will

Skies may cloud over, thunderous and dark, with a roaring zing
But when rain falls, refreshing so, brings new tides of spring.

  1. thank you for the linkation!
    this internet is probably most useful when it allows people to witness the triumphs and the challenges that we are all subject to in life. I’m a big fan of the idea of identifying with others… not what they do or where they are in life, but the feelings they experience when they encounter (these) triumphs and challenges. it helps a lot.
