Life & Death

Life & Death
Life is a journey that traverses time and events. It is a spiral that culminates with death.
Every life begins as a small seed. The seed is planted and nurtured to grow into a big strong flower.
The seed is aided by watering and feeding as it moves on the journey through growth.
This growth produces a flower that radiates beauty. As the season passes the flower begins to age, wither and grow old. The plant that began as a seed many moons ago is beginning die. Death is near.
So it is with life. Conception starts life. Then through caring and nurturing life is stimulated. A human being is created.
In mid-life the being radiates beauty, much the same as a new flower. But the death spiral starts.
Death is a long slow spiral down into nothingness. Yet out of death springs new life. For in death the flower spreads its seed to renew life. Humans spread their seed throughout their life, not waiting until the death spiral begins.
Yet even here the cycle of life is renewed before the spectre of death comes knocking at the door.
Life and death would not exist without the other.
