Seasonal Passages

Summer yearns
sun burning
water cooling
life affirming
longing for love

I would hold you there
in those days of youth
when relationship
donned mystery
and fear shrouded
the path

But Autumn reigns now
a time for letting go
a time for turning
back clocks – time
lost in a mere blink
on the shores
of our story

And soon Winter
when I will knit
our memories
into cozy dreams
and while away
the frosty mornings
sipping from the cup
of moments lost.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  2. Wow, this is a wonderful poem, VJ. The analogy of our lives with the changing of the seasons really spoke to me. Each stanza was a lovely poem of its own but I loved how they flowed together so well.

  3. Wish I could turn back the clock on bodily aging without losing all the wisdom gained through spiritual aging. Both occur in parallel … interesting tradeoff of dominant energies.
    Love your closing stanza – a model perspective!
