Writers Digest /Summer Winter Spring or Fall

Summer Winter Spring or Fall

it is still spring             perhaps the first season of the year        sometimes it is hard to tell

the beginning or ending              winter's days                                    cold and long

everything hidden under snow                                         all is transformed to winter white

in spring                                            the days seem longer brighter

little green shoots begin to emerge      peek above ground     we drop layers of protection

no longer needed              we are always in preparation            for the coming season

soon it will be summer                        days grow longer                lazy             warm

in the mountains                    the morning air feels colder                      even than winter

summer will pass                 and it will be winter again              my favorite of all seasons

i like to close myself in                 look inward             get to work               i feel like bear

in his den             always waiting with expectation           for the arrival of the next season

I feel like a bear in his den in winter, too, Annell. But, unlike you, it is harder for me to work then. I just want to doze. LOL.
