Autum leaves have came calling..
A hand stitched quilt falling..
The stealth snow of
winter..silently crept away..
Spring tears enticing all to
grow..
Seeds that were sewn..wanting
nolonger to be owned..
Discontented with the ground..
Blooming with all its colors
proud..
Roses with their tempting
blooms..
Seductively beckoning..
The green grass throws a warm
blanket across the land..
A backdrop for a kaleidascope..
Trees laden heavily with
leaves..dancing with the
afternoon breeze..
Gossamer webs spread between..
Droplets of dew intertwined..
Embracing all with the sunkissed
mist..
Flushing virgin buds with its
passionate kiss..
The sun with all its fervor..
Arousing with its tender
warmth..all to come outside and
play..
Fragerant aromas fill the air..
Restoration is near..
Springs supple rebirth..
Soon gives way..
To a fiery summer day..

I have a bad case of Spring Fever after reading this.  Some wonderful imagery of seasonal unfoldings.
Nice writing and welcome to Passions.
