THE SEASONS

I understand the seasons now
I know their shades are varied
moods and knowing savor
each in turn ...
The lightning, sudden
frightening bolts of brightness ...
let it come ... for this is beauty
deepest mood that complements
the peaceful days ...
Then let it pass, let winds
blow soft and brush my cheek
with moistened lips ...
for this is beauty, deepest calm
that complements the stormy days ...
Let each shade color me
in turn, the red, the blue
the purple days
for I would know the shades of each
yet be the color of the whole.

  2. Margie, you are so right...our moods do indeed change with the seasons. Very nice ending.

    I'm liking your new background too (it's changed since I was here last).

    Thanks also for the visit earlier. Much appreciated and I hope your hubby has a safe return. ;-)

    Have a great week ahead, dear lady!

  22. Margie,

    Wonderful words, which work so well together. Words and images of mood and weather.
    The harmony or the heaviness.

    So much rain and poor weather here in England this summer. My mood is very sad!!!!

    Best wishes, Eileen
