"Slow Shifting" - A Seasonal Poem

I have written and published many poems all my life, including a self-published poetry book.

The sun rising in Autumn.

"Slow Shifting"

The sun rises in

A hazy sky; hugging the

Valley in autumn.

Icicles drip from

A running fountain among

Trees in winter air.

A red ladybug

Crawls on a holy green leaf

In the crisp, spring sun.

A seagull skims the

Sparkling sea under a

Blaring summer sky.

As the seasons shift,

Wind breezes are different.

Some changes move slow.

Same Fountain in Bryant Park in Autumn as the one below with icicles.
