Love is a Season

Love is a Season

A Poem by rivers
"

"love is a season that came to pass"... a poem written on a lonely stormy night seeking cathartic healing...

"

focus drifts in and out

on this rainiest of dark nights

my heart is low... as love turned cold

with the first frost of the changing seasons.

the golden sorrow of the fallen autumn leaves

carpet the November wilderness floor

 

traces of yesterday's sunshine

disappeared into a thick shroud of fog,

clouding the uncharted pathways

in the fields of lost enchantment.

glowing dreams faded

into the veil of the misty horizon

as the setting sun was enveloped

by the blanket of pending twilight.

 

sleepless eyes reveal my restless soul...

bitter sweet emotions flood a weary heart

mourning… the dream that’s over

grateful… for the hypnotic trance

lamenting… the thoughts of wasted love

thankful…we could walk a mile together

 

"love is a season that came to pass"

adore evolved with the gentle summer breezes

floating gracefully like a blue bird’s feather

…suddenly changing directions

in  the blink of an eye

as if it were washed away

in a torrential tempest squall

of winter’s pending unpredictable season.

 

refreshed life dawns with each rising sun

while new moons radiate luminescent reflections

upon the ebb and flow of life’s changing tides.

"unconditional love is a season that will never pass"

enriching the presence of our true nature...

"Love is a season that will come to pass" is the most truthful phrase I ever read. I don't usually like reading poems about love and romance, because I know that love can bring the most out of us but also the worst. It is a tricky state of being that you can't prevent nor predict and hate when I'm not in control of my emotions... it is gateway to getting hurt.

The poem is beautiful and describes love as it actually is. I enjoyed it and I wouldn't change a thing. Magnificent work as always Harlon, keep at the good work!

here you beautifully capture a very personal feel of Love's ebb, the other side of that twirling coin. Thankful for love's eternal twirl. In my own life, I have found that God's love is unconditionally flowing, while human relational love seems to require nurturing and invitation for ebb and flow. Loved this poem, Harlon.

filled with emotion and imagery my friend, splendid thoughts here, Love is the all or the nothing of life, a gift when present and a curse when taken away, great work Harlon.
