TO EVERYTHING TURN TURN TURN

What does it feel like to stand outside letting the Sun light lay itself All over you?

What does the sound of magic have?

What does the change of seasons smell like?

 

I share with you this morning a song that blew in on the morning wind. It filled me up and now I’m sure it with you.  It will  follow me in my brain all day.  You know that one right?  Thank the Heavens I like it.  I followed it with my own poetic endeavor in response.

 

TURN TURN TURN… BY THE BYRDS  

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)

There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)

And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

 

A time to be born, a time to die

A time to plant, a time to reap

A time to kill, a time to heal

A time to laugh, a time to weep

 

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)

There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)

And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

 

A time to build up,a time to break down

A time to dance, a time to mourn

A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

 

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)

There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)

And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

 

A time of love, a time of hate

A time of war, a time of peace

A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

 

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn)

There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn)

And a time to every purpose, under Heaven

 

A time to gain, a time to lose

A time to rend, a time to sew

A time for love, a time for hate

A time for peace I swear it’s not to late

~~~~~     *****     ~~~~~     *****     ~~~~~

 

To every season there is a purpose

Everything has a reason under the Heavens

There is as much time as is given

You have time now

 

It will all change again and then again

The opposites hold you left to right

Up to down the circle goes round and round

You are in and of the Circle of Life 

 

When purpose calls you to your seasons

Be the reason that peace has a chance

It all comes and goes and comes again

You are under the Heavens

 

Turn to your neighbor with joy

Turn to your enemy with peace

You are the reason under Heaven 

You are a child of Infinite wonder

 

To every season there is a purpose

You have a reason under Heaven

To turn turn turn everything

Into the peace that is our only chance

 

I swear it’s not too late                                                                                                                                                                                             copyright jeanne adwani
