Seasons in Life

10 Comments

For joy, for mirth
For unbridled laughter
And the gayest of fancies;
Fun that is mild, warm
Sunning, swimming in time 🙂

When laughter deepens
Sinks
Into gloom;
When thunderclouds gather
Threaten to rain-
When emotion floods
And seeps into the soul-
Turbulence-
Deep deep pools of misery
That swallow you whole!

And then the lull-
A quiet of understanding
Sometimes not;
At times accepting;
Caught in the current
Of the passage of time.

Most times, in the moment.

So too, with seasons- as they live;
Each in their place

The fresh and the blooming

The warm and ripening

The fruition of dreams

Quietly returning to whence
It all began.

Each season, in itself
A reason for Life.

Random springcleaning, searching for an important book, and a tiny notepad from years ago, finds my hands. Flipping through its pages, this word doodle 🙂 Silly, but I guess I know where it comes from 😀

  1. These words are always relevant. Sensible people know the change of seasons and wait for the dark clouds to pass….Hope I become one soon! I think I will remember this poem of yours always, Usha!

  2. A poem unearthed from seven years ago
    Of Life’s seasons which mellifluously flow
    Climates have four
    The Bard three more
    And Usha’s words, in hearts will warmly glow!

  3. You have,with seasons that are four
    brought the meaning of life to the fore
    with words that make you floor
    begging for more and more.
