         Of Love and Spring

The edge of this forest-world is
dark and silent like the edge of
     the twilight sea.
The cicada sing their sad lament
to another Summer passing.
There is a first touch of Autumn
    in the evening air.
One greets the thought of Winter
with sad memories of all things
that should have been but never
    were;
and yet, this fine Summer moon,
above the lonely journey of the
    ‘now,’
conjures the finest hopes and
dreams of Love and Spring as
yet to come.

Yep,the seasons are much like a life lived. We, like the seasons, go through stages, happy and carefree like spring, nurting like summer. Then like fall we begin to fade slightly, only to be devoured come winter. Enjoyed this one.
