Poem: Mother Nature Takes Vacation

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Mother Nature Takes Vacation

Little peeps of green
shooting up through the barren soil,
like tulips, crocuses, and hyacinths
tempting us with spring.

With Mother Nature fooling us daily,
sending flooding downpours
changing to ice skating rinks,
with temperatures spiking
on a sunny day,
to snow covered blankets by morning.

Mother Nature must be busy
traveling with Father Time
taking a much needed vacation,
leaving the four seasons,
spring, summer, fall, and winter
to fight it out
on their own.

"Four Seasons Song" by Jack Hartmann
