Seasonal Love

Let me tell you about my lover. His name is Autumn, and we have just been reunited! I delight in gazing into his cloudless, blue-sky eyes as they entice me to come closer! And his sparkling mane of golden sun-rays makes my heart lurch! He arrived in a coat of many colors, shimmering in the light and constantly changing. With anticipation in every move, he slowly sheds his lovely garb. Day by day becoming more and more exposed to my wanting eyes. And then...just as he has not one stitch left...he is GONE! On a gusting WHOOSH of icy, cold air! Leaving me in the wickedly frigid arms of winter. A lover of an entirely different sort, indeed!!!

Angers me that your lover stole my summer love. Overnight, the warmth of her light packed up and left. The skies cry and wind blows her further from me. May have to put long pants on soon due to the chill your lover brings.

Your love will return, as will mine. That's the thing about seasonal loves...they always come back!

Very poetic! I believe being around writers has rubbed off on you.

Robin said...

Haha! Thanks Jan! Not sure how poetic it is but it kept rattling around in my head when I was walking so I decided to write it out!
