Shifting Season: A Quatern form


The tree that refused to believe it was winter

For d’Verse Prompt – Meeting The Bar – The Reason For Rhyme. 

When summer, steeped, wanes deep and soon
chilled north winds have strictly spoken.
Cool night airs steer me to the moon,
past hearts and spells still unbroken.

Autumn waits and plays with colour
when summer, steeped, wanes deep and soon.
In wintertime, when stark is fuller
icy gusts of our heart’s swoon.

In between tides, amidst sand dune
dreams of December is Nature’s will.
When summer, steeped, wanes deep and soon
I ‘ll still love you and then until.

Wake me up when you are speaking
and if the rains are warm monsoon.
Way past mountains bronzed and sneaking,
when summer, steeped, wanes deep and soon.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.

  1. I love the poem that goes so well with the photo. We don’t have autumn here in this part of US. I used to live up north when the seasons are so distinctive, especially on one major highway with maple trees on both sides that goes on miles. It was a delight to see the colors changing , green, yellow, orange, red, and brown, and finally decided to recreate themselves. Thank you very much to support my posts. 🙂

    1. I could not imagine what it would be like to not experience the chaning seasons. Like those who also never get to see or touch snow. I am so glad you enjoyed this and perhaps it brought a little autumn to your good selves.

  2. You portray transition so beautifully.One season gliding smoothly into the other very soothing and restive .There is music in the words.I felt a sense of calmness pervade my being a rich contentment as we mellow with age.A wonderful post.
