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!


Seasons Four


Summer rains came down to see me
Light as heat can dry
Winter storms flew far to whelm me
Dark and cold and miry

Spring returned with sun to soothe me
High yet hot for healing
Autumn fell, its moon awoke me
Low and cool and aching

Life’s Moments


Sunday rises,
Yet I’m not sure I see it,
Through the misty veils of sight,
It feels grey, rainy,

Last vestiges of winter take their bite
Into hibernation,
For summer will pass,
As all seasons do,
Faster and faster,
Each year blurring to the next,
One long tapestry of life and time,
No divide,
No partition,
