Exploring the beauty, wonder, and mystery of each season.
Spring, a world awakens, loveliness abroad
Purity creeping on velvet feet
Raining gently, green falling on field and glen
Inciting all to mirth and joy, calling, beckoning
Neither want nor sorrow has a place
Gathering, gathering strength from days of tender promise
Summer, bold it breaks upon the dawn
Unfurling, day by day, its ardor, full and heavy
Measuring the moments with buzzing, humming, incessant life
Melting desire, bequeathing lazy, spinning hours of golden warmth
Enveloping intentions, replacing all with drowsy submission
Ripening, growing, growing, giving without guile
Autumn, mysteriously falls into fullness
Untold bounty, heavy-laden green and gold
Turns idle thoughts to quick, summoning mind and muscle
Unending glory from the auguring of primal innocence
Mornings tinged with cool, half-warm Sun, all is shimmering
Nature's last embrace, falling, falling--waning splendor
Winter, hushed and still, asks nothing
Icy tranquility, shrouding memory and expectations
Night encroaches, insipid gloom seeping, penetrating
Twisted shapes against a grey, grey sky--all void of life
Eternity within a crystal moment, shadows of hidden promise
Rests now, waiting, waiting in silent obscurity
