Poem: Season Bet


Poem: Season Bet

Spring is here,

Cherry blossoms fragrance and romance,

Surrounding pink in love,

Green grass growing jealous.

Golden days in the summer,

Bring nostalgic memories of,

Dusty bookcase, tickets for two,

A warm melody you hummed.

Autumn arrived,

Birds migrate,

Slow to fall withered leaves,

You stole time like a thief.

Recalling winter,

White snowballs grew suspicious,

Sliding into pitfalls and traps,

But survived the ice cold water.

Dear Season,

Although you could not stick with me for all seasons,

No apologies needed,

You must have your reasons.

I will never regret the short times spent with you,

I just hope you do not bet on spring, summer, autumn, winter,

Each season is rich but,

Invest in one only and you'll lose you.

I wish you beautiful beginnings in spring,

Fresh lemonade in summer,

Strength to move on in autumn,

And glimmering snowflakes in winter.

Fall is here, and with it the rains we expect. Leaves will begin falling in earnest soon. It's a lovely time of year, and you captured it beautifully with your words.

Thank you Jodah! Haha, good point about climate change. I would not suspect you for betting though hahaha. Hope all of you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hello Thelma, I'm glad you were able to visualize the seasons. I agree all seasons are special in their own way. Thank you for visiting my poem.

Misbah, thank you for your lovely comment! You got the idea. It's my pleasure to share with my friends.

Nicely written, Li-Jen. It was quite unique how you wrote a letter to the season. I would never bet on the seasons or would lose for sure, especially with how the climate is changing.

I love the ideas that you’ve incorporated into your poem. They are very interesting,

Thelma Alberts from Germany on September 25, 2021:

Nice poem. I like all the seasons. Spring when all the flowers bloom. Summer when the days are longer and the time to spend at the beach and lakes. Autumn when the leaves are in golden colors and winter when it snow. Thanks for sharing.
