The Changing Of The Seasons..

The ever-changing face of Mother Nature never ceases to amaze and delight me.. It calls to the artist within my soul, and tells me to take time to just stop, to pause, to rest a while, and appreciate the beauty of our Earth through all of her Seasons..

The Changing Of The Seasons..

Autumn yawns,
and shakes the golden leaves from her hair,
as they tumble,
spiralling down,
caught dancing on a breeze.
She is sleepy now,
after the blowsy activity
of Summer,
when her beauty shone
and her scent so delighted.
A vision of colour and textures,
and hot long balmy days..
Cooling now as Autumn descends.

Autumn Yawns..

Winter awaits,
with his ice cold fingers..
Jack Frost
knocking at every door,
leaving lacy webs
of crystal splendour in his wake,
to be admired in the early light of dawn.
An eerie ice laden beauty
all his own...
As he paints the landscape
in shades of white
from his Wintry palette
of muted hues.

Winter Slips In..

Plants and bulbs slumber soft
beneath the earth,
their time to rest.
Until Spring, awoken,
stretches out her young green limbs,
roused by the warming sun,
and pushing through
the rich moist soil,
dresses once more
in foliage splendour
adorned with blossom,
set against a cerulean sky..
She takes centre stage,
till Summer returns..

Spring Turning To Summer..

The beauty of Seasons
stay but awhile
to weave their wondrous spell..
So take time my love
to rest and observe.
Pause for a moment
within your frantic paced life..
Open your eyes,
and take a deep breath.
Let a heartbeat elapse,
a brief segment in time,
so you too can wonder..
At the ever-changing face
of Mother Nature at work.

What a resplendent post in every way, Songbird. Whatever way we try to acknowledge the beauty and variety of nature we fall short, but your verse, videos, music and picture are par excellence. One feels like having lived through the seasons as we come to the end of the show - siva

Thank you so much Sivar.. It's hard taking time out to appreciate nature in all her varied seasons, but when we do pause a moment, we never fail to be astounded.So glad you enjoyed the video's too. Secret Garden on the second video are an absolute pleasure to listen to..Bless you for your king and such complimentary post dear friend..\0/

How absolutely beautiful Bev.
Such lovely expressions of the seasons. I just love..
Autumn yawns,
and shakes the golden leaves from her hair, Jack frost leaving lacy webs
of crystal splendour in his wake, as he paints the landscape with shades of white from his wintry palette.
Stunning poetry and images
What a marvelous share
Thank you so much for this treat.

Hello dear friend \0/. Funny enough that line came into my head one evening whilst sat here at home, and just wouldn't leave until I had written this poem..I truly believe that some poetry is absolutely inspired by those greater than ourselves.. I have a soft spot for this poem and am so glad that I could share it with you all here on Wikinut..Lovely to see you here on my page my Scottish friend..Hugs to your heart..\0/x

Thank you Aiyanna, but I didn't want to go for the obvious that so many have heard so often. I don't wish to offend, but I ask again that you respect my work and not spam it with your poetry..It will be deleted every time.
It is invasive and disrespectful and will not be tolerated on my pages.
