    Every season has its own glory (James Watkins) not hdr

    Every season has its own glory,
    Every purpose has its own time,
    Every moment has its own story,
    Every story has its own line.

    I have walked deep into cities,
    Shining brightly never to fail,
    Listened to heart cries,
    Lost in the morning,
    Standing on corners
    Now stagnant and stale.

    Where is the hope
    That brought forth the laughter?
    Where is the song?
    The music unveiled?
    Why are the choices so
    Wasted and bitter?
    Gathered in hatred,
    Broken and pale.

    I have seen (new) stars on the mountains,
    Fed on the movement of heaven and earth-
    Fired by the framework
    Of perfect perspective,
    Fueled by the turning of terrible truth.

    Come now and sing of mists in the forest,
    Sensual sonnets of songs in the dirt-
    Come and behold the delicate balance
    Of seasons and reasons and rhythms
    And birth.

    There are the voices once lost in confusion,
    Crushed in the thriving, deepening swale-
    Calloused and cold the circling convenience,
    Crippled commotion emotions prevail.

    Beacons in quiet of last true performance,
    Heralded nature in singular cause-
    Perfect and pure
    Though wasted and slandered.
    Washed by confession
    In smoldering awe.

    Severed connections, squandered projections-
    Revered reflections by stammering tongues-
    Coined by controlling contriving convections,
    In different directions now written in stone.

    Now is the time to look to the heavens,
    Now is the moment to take up the cause,
    Now is the voice of blazing amazement,
    Borne on the winds of the gathering storm.

    Listen to stream, listen to forest,
    Listen to flower, and staggering fawn-
    Listen to voices rolling like thunder,
    Come drink of the waters
    And dance with the dawn.

    Wrapped in the garments of natural beauty,
    Facing the force of the burgeoning call-
    Strong in the seasons of life and creation,
    Firm on foundations that never will fall.
