Seasons

 

 

 

The zephyrs sweetly scented air

colors the SPRING in my step

whispering to me on butterfly's breath

posies of poppies tickle my nose

emerald blue grass grows between my toes

 

my heart blooms in harmonious tune

to the magical brilliance of the season

 

 

Sun bleached cantatas of warming desire

heat beckons paradise whims

shade, neath a canopy tempers the fire

breathless as moments begin

hummingbird melodies, firefly sighs

vacation smiles embrace

 

crystalline beaches and tangerine skies

endless this SUMMER we trace

 

 

Sun sets soft on Golden pond

dappled colors falling

chimneys puff in early morn

November breezes calling

orange burns of browns and golds

 in auburn decorations

Summer apples baked to pies

windowsill  scent-sations

flickered hints of candlelight

the Foggy morning mist

 

whisper sounds of windblown leaves

when all are AUTUMN kissed

 

 

A majestic crunch orchestrates
a path of steel toes across
a toasted marshmallow bath
illuminated by domestic rainbows
laying out the way towards
a morphing of the road into
a land of trees decked out
in defiant green poised to write
an overture eliciting a soundtrack
of popcorn-emulating crackles

 

in a wood stove melting WINTER 
with nature's heated breath

 

 

 

The year sings its anthemed harmonics

bowed to the wiles of wind and sun,

its moods wrapped in a florescent palette

of seasonal commands - silent, instinctive,

shadows softly mysterious;

in the passing of bee-hummed sips

 

from the year's verdant well,

Nature closes its eyes - and sleeps

I loved this poem. All the voices had their own style and personality that seemed to make each season pop out to me, along with the verse that describes that very thing that makes each season special and enjoyable (except for ice and roads during this winter, am I right?). J'adore. -Ian

Thanks so very much Thomas. These poets were a blast to work with.
Kudos on such and undertaking. The seasons and their passing is indeed captured interestingly by the separate minds of the poems creators. Giving it a unique feel throughout.

I was already drawn from the title alone, not that its a collab but I just love the concept of seasons... the 4 seasons a year... never got to experience spring and autumn but I did imagine it by the words describe here... from the concept of collabration of 5 different poets it is like the poem spoke of one voice alone... I can't pin point which is Ms. Em's to Steve or from ms. F to you(mr. J) or to Ms.Shalli... It's always so nice to read poets come together in one voice... it's all connected, i truly enjoyed this one...
