Season’s Change


NaPoWriMo Day 13

Our winter blankets put away
the ones we can control
then one last unexpected covering found
as greens again turn white
and warm temperatures turn to cold.

Just another temporary delay
geese continue their northbound trip
trees pushing out their leafing buds
and grass leaves behind winter brown
poking through the blanket’s rips.

Trickles of water run down the road
mud puddles form on the grassy knoll
potted plants await their transfer
to garden beds of blackened earth
for now at home behind sunlit windows.

I embrace the season’s change.

  1. what a lovely way to describe the feeling of spring and change, Love the first verse “our winter blankets put away, the ones we can control”

    Incredible!

  2. What a constant, this change of the seasons.

    “…potted plants await their transfer/ to garden beds of blackened earth/ for now at home behind sunlit windows…”

    Now, this is something one does not hear mentioned often.

    Good one Steve,
    Eric

  3. This is a lovely one Steve…the feel of nature mirrored in our own lives. Maybe sometimes we just need a little more blanketing for really strong growth to emerge. I love the way you look at this. J x
