Winter's Lesson

a poem by Scott Zentner, USA

Came upon me
Like a surprise visit
From an old foe.
And unready for
His unwelcomed arrival,
I quickly gave way
To his grip,
A darkness as paralyzing
To my being
As Kryptonite to Kent.
And just as the last
Breath of life
Had all but been breathed,
A ray of sunlight
Came into view,
And Hope sprang eternal
Yet once again.
Then Winter exited,
Though not as swiftly
As he had entered,
Leaving behind
An arcane reminder…
That the bitter change of seasons
Is essential
To every soul
That yearns to grow.
