    As Your Seasons Turn

    As Your Seasons Turn

    My eyes watch as the colors change
    and the sun sets upon your face
    the leaves in your hair falling loose
    bathed within a rose-golden hue.

    The seasons of your soul turning
    my eyes watch as the colors change
    while clouds are passing through your heart
    and the flowers bloom from your pores.

    My breath is stilled within your breeze
    painted in natures earth tone hues
    my eyes watch as the colors change
    and winter sparks within your gaze.

    I bask within your grassy plains
    beneath the soft shade you create
    the moon rises within your womb
    my eyes watch the colors change.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    Glorious! What is particularly wonderful to me is that while each of these four 'seasons' could be read as a poem in itself, each flows organically from the preceding. And it is simultaneously a whiff of that season and a tribute to the person addressed.

    Thank you, I am glad you enjoyed this one. I had some doubts about it and thought it might sound a bit awakard, so glad to read your comments.

    I kind of imagined that you wrote this for a tree that you like to sit under or one you see from a window. One you gaze at while you write and/or gives you inspiration in moments of sadness. But it makes more sense that it was written for a dear friend. Great images!

    Thank you, I acutally didn't write this about a specific person, so I guess in a way it is about woman in general and it draws a bit from my Goddess worship.

    Eloquent and beautiful. This is amazing!
    I'm losing all those stupid games
    That I swore I'd never play

    Very well written. This line is immortal:

    the moon rises within your womb

    I often think of the night as a lady, and giving birth to the moon is a vivid image I can relate well to.
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    Thank you, the moon is something which I have always held sacred.
