"Celebrate and enjoy all that yu create, have created. To reject any part of it is to reject a part of yourself. Whatever it is that is now presenting itself as part of your creation, own it, claim it, bless it, be thankful for it. Seek not to condemn it for to condem it is to condemn yourself." Excerpt from Conversations With God
Winds of Change -------------------------------------------
The Winds of Change
bringing with them Winter
Is that howling
or the crying of the trees
as their colorful cloak of fall
and they are left bare
Are the rains the Heavens
crying the tears
of sorrow to see the seasons
Winter may seem
wicked and cold
but see how
he takes the coat
and covers the land
nestling the womb of
life till spring
and how the
tears of Heaven
are the giving
waters of life
I definitely enjoyed this piece. the imagery you used was a perfect choice to display the beauty of winter's coming as opposed to the oft-times displayed dark, cold and dead nature that most other writers decide to use when writing about winter. You very vividly and quite beautifully captured the positive, brighter side of winter, and i applaud you!
What a beautiful way of looking at winter.. instead of the dark, damp, cold that we tend to describe it by. Also, the first and second stanza was amazing.. with the sadness of the trees and heaven crying.. And then you give us a look at winter's warm soul.. with its comforting blanket. So nicely done Tif. I enjoyed ! ~Sandra
This is another wonderful seasonal poem you have here! I like how you have written this one and the perspective you give to winter. To think of how "he" takes the leaves from the trees to blanket the earth till spring, and how you call the earth the womb is very good. It really is true that we could view the earth or more appropriately...mother earth as the womb that gives life. The leaves provide the insulation to keep her warm until spring arrives. I love that! Very good stuff! And I also like how you question whether the wind is howling or if it is in fact the trees crying as they are stripped of their leaves. This is a wonderful prose, a very creative and interesting view on why nature does what she does. Nice work! Take care.
Hehehe, this has really good flow, and perfectly awesome imagery. I have nothing negative to say, but just check punctuation and add commas, semicolons, etc. at the ends of lines and stanzas. Also, capitalize the beginning of each line, even though it's weird feeling. Keep writing, because you rock.
We can all learn a lot from the change of the seasons. It is such a pity that global warming is slowly but surely removing the distinction of each. If this trend continues, the change of seasons will be no more.
