Poets Corner: Seasons



As I drive through the colors of fall

I can feel my heart open up to change

I embrace the beauty that surrounds me

Then close my eyes and breathe a sigh….

Soon darkness will come early and

The nakedness of the trees

Exposed and fragile, stand bare

I want to get lost in sunlight

When energy soaks

Through my veins and my spirit comes alive!

Fall…. beautiful leaves bursting in color

Winter… darkness, cold, empty

Spring… flowers, rebirth, new beginnings

Summer…, laughter, warmth, long days

I surrender once again to the change….
