Stages

I.
snow laden limbs
bow down to the pressure –
depression smiles

II.
budding limbs birth
& weep teardrop petals –
sadness scatters

III.
lush crowded limbs
stretch toward the sun’s warmth –
happiness shines

IV.
balding limbs sway
& cast off waning leaves –
hope colors and sheds



On inspiration for this piece: This idea was pulled from Poetic Asides's 2015 April PAD Challenge: Day 11. "For today’s prompt, write a seasonal poem."  I decided to go with a collection of four...one for each season.

Very nice--the tone in each piece is perfect, and the continuing images draw them together wonderfully.
