A Month of Seasons

A Month of Seasons

A Poem by William Michael Reeves
"

A Renga with Cherrie Palmer

"
Spring never could March
surely Summer was watching
for she was left out

June consoled Summer melting
April showers flood in sun

Console me never
"Wait now!" said Mother Nature
see the tempest blow

May told Mother forever
as August blew into Fall

April whispers softly
her slight voice cannot be heard
over stars singing

July cries in Spring's murmur
hearing suns September wept

Hope's lace covered
November and December
sleeping under snow

October webs without warmth
wish January would come

February's March
Waned finding an early bloom
yearning for the Spring

2022

Cherrie Palmer wrote a Haiku based on mine about seasons. I answered with couplets. A Renga.

I love the way you made this so three-dimensional.... months conversing with each other.. it's quite clever.Each season has it positives and negatives... winter seems to sleep a lot. Mother nature know all; and speaks with authority. An imaginative piece.
Best, B.

What a clever way to present each and tell the tale of them all, and with such great Haiku.
