Universe

circle of life
seasons come and go … always
the Cosmos leads us
­                                                                                   in a mesmerising dance­
­                                                                                   among the stars and planets
a new horizon
the temptation to explore
distant mysteries
­                                                                                   an ever-growing courage
­                                                                                   to wave goodbye to the earth
just another star
a distant blue memory
nature’s origins
­                                                                                   offering up the treasures
­                                                                                   from her abundant garden
the earth keeps spinning
her dance shoes unravelling
season to season
­                                                                                   captured in a pirouette
­                                                                                   the constant circle of life

My response to Carpe Diem #1530 Universe … Soliloquy No Renga (solo-renga)

We have reached the letter U for universe and our challenge is to create a Soliloquy No Renga (solo-renga) inspired by the following haiku:

circle of life
seasons come and go … always
the Cosmos leads us

© Chèvrefeuille

We must start with the given haiku and our solo-renga may have a maximum of 12 stanzas and a minimum of six.
