Seasons Ways Poems

Winter's Ways...

Winter enters as Fall exits
Exits as Winter's ways enter
 
with...
 
Winter's glistening breath
exhaling...
Cold touches upon my skin
 
as...
 
Winter's first morning
enters...
Upon the rising sun
 
where...
 
Winter's solstitial hands
carve...
Delicate ice sculptures
 
while...
 
Winter's bare limbs
embrace...
Me with austere beauty
 
before...
 
Winter's arctic afternoon
arrives...
On icy winds waking me
 
with...
 
Winter's whites, blues and silvers
beautiful...
Shades that color my soul
 
while...
 
Winter's crisp ambience
chills...
My inflamed mind
 
before...
 
Winter's final evening
enters...
Upon the night's rising moon
 
then exits...
 
Winter exits as Spring enters
Enters as Winter's ways exit
---
Spring's Ways...

Spring enters as Winter exits
Exits as Spring's ways enter
 
with...
 
Spring's renewing breath
exhaling...
Warm touches upon my skin
 
as...
 
Spring's first morning
enters...
Upon the rising sun
 
where...
 
Spring's equinoctial hands
animate...
The earth with colors
 
while...
 
Spring's lovely songbirds
fill...
Me with mellifluous tunes
 
before...
 
Spring's capricious afternoon
arrives...
On warm breezes waking me
 
with...
 
Spring's pinks, purples and violets
beautiful...
Shades that color my soul
 
while...
 
Spring's paradisiacal ambience
enlivens...
My dreaming mind
 
before...
 
Spring's final evening
enters...
Upon the night's rising moon
 
then exits...
 
Spring exits as Summer enters
Enters as Spring's ways exit
---
Summer's Ways...

Fall's Ways...

Fall enters as Summer exits
Exits as Fall's ways enter

with...

Fall's yielding breath
exhaling...
Cool touches upon my skin

as...

Fall's first morning
enters...
Upon the rising sun

where...

Fall's equinoctial hands
harvest...
Thoughts floating on air

while...

Fall's fickle leaves
tickle...
Me with autumnal hues

before...

Fall's whimsical afternoon
arrives...
On crisp breezes waking me

with...

Fall's reds, golds and browns
beautiful...
Shades that color my soul

while...

Fall's calm ambience
soothes...
My turbulent mind

before...

Fall's final evening
enters...
Upon the night's rising moon

then exits...

Fall exits as Winter enters
Enters as Fall's ways exit
