Each and every one different
Yet somehow all the same.
God’s gift to the earth.
Bare branches on most trees,
But who knows what will remains evergreen.
Set with lights in homes, bringing joy to all.
White powder crunches as you
The earth is black and white as nightfall comes
Animals grow thicker coats
And bears sleep peacefully.
whips ‘round cherry blossoms filling the air with bliss.
Newborn goats prance on lime green grass that the rain has provided.
The sun rains down through formerly gray clouds that still linger in the sky.
children’s giggles of joy
fill the air with noise
The stubs of leaves are back on trees
And bears open their tired eyes to find unfrozen streams
Wilting ‘neath a burning heat
on bright sunny days
kids escape to summer camps
the noise has gone away
the trees are green but thirsty standing tall against a scenery of sea and sand and sun
And bears come out to run and play,
frolicking in their own unique way.
turn red and gold with many stories left untold
crisp air fills the atmosphere
apple pie and pumpkin spice rouses the sleeping child
blue skies arrange their curtain call
clocks turned back to purchase time
shorter days longer nights
And bears prepare to do all of it again.
