Welcome back to the #WeeklyHaikuChallenge at Ronovan Writes where the prompts are Spin & Water. As usual I couldn’t stop at just one haiku. The seasons seemed to capture my attention this week.

Circling round and round
Lone leaf falls into water
Spins in a whirlpool
Sitting on the bank
Toes dipped in fresh cool stream
I watch as leaf spins
Fall Gives Way to Winter
Wind suddenly gusts
Leaves spinning strike the pool
Like painted raindrops
Winter chills the air
Leaves sit back as snowflakes fall
Ice surrounds the trees
Spring and Summer
Spring comes blowing in
Water droplets sparkle as
Spiders spin their webs
Summer sun sizzles
Children spin merry-go-round
Cool off in the pool
Seasons Faithfully Come and Go
As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease. (Gen. 8:22)
There is comfort in knowing that the seasons follow one after another and continually repeat the cycle. When we are tired of one, another is there to take its place. [bctt tweet=”Our lives also go through seasons, sometimes very hard ones, but there is hope.” username=”GaylWright”]
Most of us probably struggle at times trying to understand the why of our circumstances. We may even be unaware of the presence of God. It may seem that He has deserted us.
But take heart, my friend. God has promised never to leave us. He is working behind the scenes even when we don’t see. Each season has an ending, and the next one will come.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
