As the dawn breaks and darkness fades, a mute falls over the crickets. Enter the cock crow and the bird chirps, applauding and cheering as the new day ventures forth. There’s a non-verbal, almost unnoticed, exchange as light appears, with a promise of passing on the baton again at sundown. Perfect tandem.
And so goes the clock work on our terrestrial system. Tick-tock, as day and night maintain their consistency. Spring warms the frosty earth after winter, and with it comes the promise of new life. Summer’s blazing heat whets the earth’s appetite for rain, and prepares its palates for the coming harvest. Autumn brings with it a bounty from nature’s storehouse, just before winter shuts down all systems for hibernation and recuperation, to allow for sufficient replenishing before another cycle of hard work.
