Summer

the_four_seasons

Days start to get shorter as the seasons change

Each has what they feel is their favorite time

Whether Spring or Fall, Winter or Summer

Voicing that preference is not any real crime.

 

Winter has to be my least favorite season

The sun can be pretty reflecting on fresh snow

Drinking hot cocoa and cuddling, curled by a fire

But unfortunately I can’t stay in 3 months, I know.

 

Spring and Fall give a change that is welcome

But they don’t seem to last long enough for me

The gentle rains on the roof as you try to sleep

Just hope there is no damaging weather to see.

 

Summer will always be my favorite time of year

Sure it gets hot, but so much better on my bones

Lay by the pool or straddle the bike for a day trip

Not to mention bodies in all those tanning tones.

 

I recognize others have their reasons for a choice

Whatever season they prefer that differs from mine

Guess that us just another example of personality traits

 

Enjoy what you will, let me have months of sunshine

Exits and Entrances

 
 
 
 
barn-door
 
 
 
Autumn stood at the crossroads
 
Wearing a golden coat of plenty
 
Giving a last look at the year
 
Surrounded by a shallow mist
 
A russet door stood ajar
 
Then burst off its hinges
 
Remnants of leaves took flight
 
Autumn’s residue trampled by
 
A darkling thug
 
A braggart and thief made
 
Its entrance
 
Faceless and hooded
 
Breathing frosted air
 
Hands of cold compressed steel
 
That held the dying autumn
 
By the throat
 
This mellow boy gasped
 
His November smile slid
 
Into the deadly snarl of
 
December
 
Dark shortened days of
 
December
 
Winter stood with autumn
 
In his arms
 
Hues of faded reds and
 
Tainted greens bled slowly
 
From the fallen season.

• I like to walk and notice the change in seasons.  Using human form to depict the autumn and winter gave me some scope to see them as the frail disappearing season of beautiful hues, and the brash, bullying season of darkness and chill – making a terrifying entrance.
