Signs of green appear
At the loss of winters chill
Silent winds lament

Spring Returns – After Summer Begins!

Spring Returns - September 24 2017 - The Crab Nebula - Hubble

 

Ah! Spring returns with a fresh morning nip,
Summer abates with its burning hot tip.
A short reprieve? Or a cyclic return?
Cool, cloudy morns replace sunrise first burn.
‘Tis an abnormal load nature now brings,
To a table so changed the death bell rings.
The moments we cherish slip fast away,
We speed through our lives, our minutes, our days.
What was before doesn’t seem to exist,
Yet still we hold on, our thinking persists
To make it what was, zone comfortable,
And keep it the same, rock tight with our will.
Yet it cannot be so, weather predicts,
Spring, summer, fall come at Gods own edicts.

Note: following my previous posts regarding the early arrival of summer, today, all change again!

Heavily laden
Summer slices fast through spring
Attacks at full tilt

Note: Our spring has been very short and temperatures are already in the 30s – with no rain in sight! Nature appears to be following new patterns and paths.
