Seasons This leaf, this leaf, a gentle crimson. This leaf, a feather floating soared. This leaf, dancing downward flew. This leaf, I caught as I sat, this leaf. This leaf, twirling in the fall down. That bird, that bird, a speckled brown. That bird, a soul set wandering. That bird, circling around sky blue. That bird, I watch as I lay, that bird. That bird, singing in summer school. The sun, the sun, a shiny white. The sun, an orb of healing light. The sun, refracting rainbows new. The sun, I feel its beams, the sun. The sun, orbiting in spring forth. That hill, that hill, so very green. That hill, a mountain in training. That hill, collecting morning dew. That hill, I climb upward, that hill. That hill, snowy in winter break.
This is a throwback poem from a previously published book. I’ll be posting throwbacks every Wednesday.
I was lying on a park bench on a trail in Tennessee Valley in Mill Valley when I wrote this poem.
