The Rendering

Gentle rains sprinkled their drops

Upon your seeds of infancy;

You burst forth in innocent rapture

Richly adorned with velvet greens.


Variety of Flowers 

Warm rays of sunshine soothed your bosom;

You sparkled with bright colorful displays.

Mature and strong were your gestures,

Fulfilling your designated plan.


Fall Foliage 

Rustling in with cool, dry breezes

Autumn interrupted your attempt at glory,

Fading away your majestic beauty,

Leaving you stooped, wrinkled and grey.

  winter snow

Abruptly entered cold, harsh winter,

Drawing to a close the role you played,

Blanketing you in pure, white finery




Such are the seasons and I.

  7. Again – Exquisite words placed with beautiful art. Stunning doesnn’t cover the richness of such talent.

  8. I always love poems about the changing of seasons; and those people who seem to be stuck in life, should be welcoming that change. It brings new perspective and a fresh set of eyes. Great post today. Loved the poem. If you get the chance, pop over to my blog and read my “cheerios” post, it should make you chuckle and reflect. God bless and great work!!
