seasons of love--By Peggy Dugan French--United States

seasons of love

spring love
we climb mountains
bask on a perfect rock

summer love
we gather with family & friends
exchange vows

autumn love
we raise two kids
pass on family traditions

winter love
we bury parents
watch the kids leave home

forever love
we stand together
past radiant, future unfolding

  6. Peggy, These haiku like stanzas gave me chills. A perfect blend of the seasons to describe metaphorically our seasons of life, from our springtime to our winter and beyond. This is a keeper, meaning that I will save it among my favorite poems! Truly outstanding work! Blessings, Connie
