Two poems of the seasons by Therese Taylor and one by Sally Wylie

Lonely Day
A fresh layer of February snow
A gaggle of geese laughing just so
Naked, slippery, sleepy trees
Whispering in the breeze
Lousy violins moaning a tune
Noting spring will be here soon
A lonely walk I had today
Communing with Mother
Nature along the way

Song of Seasons
Mother Nature dances in me
Sets my mind and spirit free
Knowing colourful leaves change
Knowing life’s plans rearrange

Vibrant leaves sing brilliant songs
Autumn’s sung fall before long
Vibrant leaves dead and gone
Mother Nature’s swan song

Acceptance of time passing
Winter’s silent song everlasting
Blasting snows, whipping winds
Karma’s assent of our sins?

Knowing spring will come someday
Though it seems so far away
Sets my mind and spirit free
Mother Nature dances in me

Ice rain on the roads
Salt corrodes
Eats my plans.
