….That which has been done is that which shall be done,
and there is nothing new under the sun….
….And I applied my heart to seek…wisdom….
That which is crooked cannot be made straight,
and that which is wanting cannot be numbered….
….And I applied my heart to know wisdom….
To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven….
TURN OF THE SEASONS
The seasons turn,
summer to autumn, fall to winter
and the joyous renewal of spring.
On this earth, there has been time
for love and hate,
war and peace.
But the seasons are changing
in a new way.
On this beautiful planet at risk,
there is no more time for hate,
no time for war.
The challenge is too great
to waste energy and talent
in the luxury of destruction.
As the seasons turn,
let us use our strength and abilities
to build up,
to create something new under the sun,
to straighten what is crooked,
number what is wanting,
seek wisdom from the heart
and embrace a way of being
in harmony with each other
and with our only home.
