The Purpose of Life

Summer hangs on – green mingled with gold. Flowers bloom bravely before the frost. Autumn is inevitable for all living things. We are not born to die. We are born to live. We live to sow good seeds. We live to improve the next generation. We live to enrich other loves. Life is a strugle and a promise. If we focus on autumn, life seems pointless. Today we love and accept love. Today we set a good example. Today we compliment everything around us. Today we work to make things better. There is only today, for tomorrow never comes.

  7. Hi Linda,
    Very philosophic piece about life and death. Autumn does bring forth these kinds of thoughts. I think you meant sow instead of sew. Ron

  8. Lovely. (An “m” escaped from “compliment” in the third to the last sentence. Sneaky thing!)

  9. Food for thought. I spent a pleasant afternoon reading autumnal poetry. This fits right in. Thanks.
