Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons

Time and Relativity
Location: Murren, Switzerland

It was the greek philosopher, Heraclitus, who once said that change is central to the universe. Nothing stands still. When everything is in constant motion, the best that we can do is to live in the moment and enjoy the ride.

For this week’s challenge, let me share you a picture that I took in Murren, Switzerland along with a poem I’d written sometime ago.


as seasons come and go
that now i know
life is a series of hellos and goodbyes
a cliche but so true

sometimes i think
of what could have been
of the past
that won’t come back again

sometimes i wonder
of what it’s been
of the present
that brings unexpected things

sometimes i dream
of what it will be
of the future
that seems distant to me

but this i’m certain
without you there is no heaven
that now i know
as seasons come and go
