Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring hold more meaning than you think.


True Colors In Season

Summer

Thus begins a hiatus from enduring trials
An enlightening time from a constant watch
Slips in is a false sense of self awareness
To be so naive in a time of peace is pure neglect
Summer itself never stood still against time
Heat endures, life endures, we endure
This is a time of trying and perserverance

Summer stands still

Fall

Temperatures settle down for only a few
Trees release their kin in unknown waves
Such a release of the years past loses and gains
Laughter, sadness, remorse, doubt, deceit
All fall one by one on a ground lifeless
As they themselves fade into a silent void
This is a time of repentance and reflection

Fall stands still

Winter

Bare are the trees and flowers of yesteryear
As the moon shines, all emotion has faded away
Cold faces look upon the barren land
Within this void there is a hope to be discovered
Snow covers our mistakes, our faults, our pain
All stay silent in this arctic, frozen world
This is a time of solitude and peace

Winter stands still

Spring

A sense of revival dawns upon the trees
All of yesterday is forgotten and lost
Each branch brings new life and ideas alive
Prosperity and slight euphoria reign through the land
Each breath is pure and free of constant doubt
Each waking moment is a chance for loving freedom
This is a time of rebirth, revival, and reanimation

Spring walks on

Hi Aaron.

This is really a good text
I enjoyed flowing through the seasons
while everything else
stands still
in your true colors of season

Take care

Dear Aaron,

You have a great future as a poet. I also think that you should try writing drama for you seem to have an ear for dialogue.

Well, whatever you do in 2007, have a happy and poetically productive New Year1


Cheers,

Chris

Some lines I do not understand, Aaron, even after reflection: line 3, for example, and line 28: "slight euphoria" isn't possible because it is an emotion without qualification, just uncontrollable well-being. I like the structure, the use of line echoes and a refrain. I think the poem would have been more alive, as a nature poem, if it actually named trees, flowers, birds etc--it is more successful, however, on a symbolical level. Stanza 3 shows the best control of image, mood, allegory and music.
