Seasoned Thoughts

A poem about my thoughts at this time of year.

Seasoned Thoughts

I’m feeling a cooler summer warmth

faces with perhaps a lesser smile

people with a little more garb about them

I feel a change in seasons is upon us.

 

Summer flowers, dropping, fading away

gardens once full of healthy colouration

have plants so forlorn with loss of flowers

like small forests, stripped to stringy limbs.

 

A weaker sun arcing down, leaving us early

nights drawing in with a shiver of what’s to come

curtains drawn hiding us away

clinging to thoughts of warm sunny evenings.

 

Short days and long nights to come we fear

dreary days, lives shuffling through fallen leaves

autumn morns so refreshing as watery sun lies low

quickly winter comes, chilled to bone with a shiver.

 

Glistening snow, icicles adorning where water dripped

winter has its special days, childhood memories with children now

our earth emerges from its white coat with flowers of eternal spring

dreams of warm days to come, smiles return with warming hearts.
