…and winter will bring…

Seasons move through space and time
Finding reason, opening rhyme
readily following yet often sublime;
They bring dynamics anew.

Spring is oft the time we breathe
Seeking each moment to openly sieve
Every fresh  second of life we receive
Greening, alive, anew!

Heat, water, blue skies; Hail summers!
Katydids op’ning loudly their hummers,
Girls bare skin, showing their tummers,
Sunbaked, content, anew.

Winds come, blowing in autumn
Whirling leaves open to have fun
Limiting schedules increase each day’s run
Cider, dryness, anew…

And winter will bring in, heavy’n bold
drafts clearing noses with bitter cold
filling days inside with memories so gold;
active, glittering, anew.

    I love your opening verse, sounds like a classic!

    I’m fond of rhythm in poetry, and I really like your basic rhythm, and some of the variations. There are a few lines that don’t scan: Heat, water, … Whirling leaves… And winter… Makes me stumble a little in reading.

      Perhaps those reflect the abruptness with which we realize the next season is upon us?…..thanks for the honesty and i’l! Seek to be mores cognitive of the rhythm but not certain I’d change it on this one. I am grateful for your input. 🙂

  7. I love the rhyme scheme and the rhythm of your poem. Well done.
