The Season Of Choice

I wrote this poem when I was watching the Icy blasts of plummeting temperatures in the USA a few weeks ago, and how the snow storms were affecting everyone over there.. According to the  World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which monitors global weather, the first six weeks of 2014 have seen an unusual number of extremes of heat, cold, and rain—not just in a few regions as might be expected in any winter, but right the way around the world at the same time, with many costly disruptions to power systems,transport and food production… As you all know we expect to have Rain in Britain, but this is the wettest Winter on record  I believe since records began. But the last couple of days we have seen the SUN!

I hope where ever you are you are the weather is improving.

Spring IS on the Way!

This are part of some pre-scheduled Posts  and I will be catching you all up Very Soon ..

Crocuses in Snow

The Season of choice.

Blizzards of snow in Icy blasts

Falls from the sky like shards of glass

Biting your face and taking your breath

Temperatures plummet bringing Icy death

~

Gone is the beauty of softly formed flakes

Drifting and freezing on rivers and lakes

Branches that bend and twigs that do snap

All who go out pull on mittens and hat.

~

But what of the birds? What warmth so they find?

Huddled together in shrub tangled vines

And what about Fox held up in his den

And all our four-legged, what of them?

~

Do you give them a thought? Do you give them a crumb?

Have you spared a thought? For our Animal Kingdom

And what of the homeless who sleep on our streets

Have you thought of their plight as you sleep beneath warm sheets?

~

Winter is harsh as it culls out the weak

And the mist rolls in closer even as I speak

Seasons are our barometers of life

Like the elements of Nature combining love and strife

~

Then there’s the Spring with new growth and birth

As we push on upward seeking self worth

Summer is the garden of beauty and play

As we experience the colour of life every day

~

Autumn are the years we mature and let go

Like the leaves from a tree we float with the flow

Winter can be a lonely place and cold

Holding Seasons memories as we grow old.

~

So whatever the weather of storms in Life

Hold onto your heart the Sun of all light

Fill yourself up with gratitude and love

By loving each other, we shall ascend up above..

~~~~~~~~~~~

    Lovely flowers! 🙂

    Yeah we’ve seen nature kick back!!! 😦

    Don’t believe in global warming?

    You must be a special kind of stupid! 🙂

    As long as corporations own governments it’s going to get worse… 😦

    Yes, Spring is very early this year here in Oregon. Daffodils have bloomed before the end of February!

    Hey DW….Great poem 🙂 So well said. I wish sometimes I did not have the knowledge I have and I could see things again through innocent eyes. Knowing what Haarp is doing to the weather is depressing. Creating drought in our west in the U.S. to destroy the food source is infuriating as is the freezing of the people in the north as prices sky rocket and fuel becomes untouchable and wood supplies have long run out because the cold started so early in the season and never let up. I wish I could just see it as the “Weather” being unusual but sadly I know better. I hope you guys stay afloat over there. I see remarkable pictures of flooding. Somehow we will endure this challenge to us and we will finally emerge free from our tormentors. We are well on our way and as you say, spring is just around the corner. ( I hope!) blessings and love to you DW….VK

    Crocus, always the first sign of Spring. Lovely

    We do all need to remember our connections. Not just our connections to each other, which we do seem to forget so easily but our connections to the greater world. You poem is a lovely reminder.

    Well spring is around the corner Sue ,and planting will take all the blues away for those who have a bit of a dislike for winter.Having said that we got a bit to much sun here on island and could feel it the next day.As I say want to look like a sunflower and shine you have to get out .And all the snow is great anyways as it rejuvenates Mother Earth and does indeed add to the great growing cycle.
    Humanity is finding out in many ways why balance is the key word Sue.Love your poem.

    Hello dear Sue…

    I really loved . It made me think of Shakespeare´s “The Seven ages of Men” (As you Like it.” ACT 2, SC 7 > See link below)
    You have perfectly highlighted the main images related to each season and the feelings attached to them…
    I particularly liked these verses:

    “Seasons are our barometers of life /
    Like the elements of Nature combining love and strife/…
    Whatever the season beats, Hold onto your heart the Sun of all light”

    Cycle of nature filling us with gratitude and love as time flows.

    Best wishes from Aquileana 😉

I was never into him and didnt have to read any of his works when I was in school, way back when LOL… So I was intrigued to read how similar the thoughts were.. 🙂 amazing… and thank you for the link so I could read.. You are full of knowledge my good friend thank you 🙂 xxx Sue

    Beautiful post Sue, both words and pictures. Spring is definitely here for us – we are very fortunate I think. My daffodils are breaking out – there really is nothing quite as beautiful after a long, wet winter. Wordsworth had it right. Keep taking care my lovely friend and only do what you can. xxxx

      Lol, Spring has sprung today, and I even had time to go for an early morning walk on my one day off in a while.. I saw catkins out, pussy willow and gorse all out.. Nice.. …….and……….Blue Sky .. The snow has yet to melt over the pond!.. But it will, and I am thankful this year I have not had to struggle to work each day through loads of snow, although there have been plenty of large puddles! 😉 Take care…and see you soon.. 🙂

    I always put out bread for the birds and fatballs too but guess what? The squirrels run off with those 🙂 lol They can hardly lift them let alone take them back to their little habitats, but they manage all the same 🙂

    I love your poem Sue it adds food for thought and reminds us that we need to help all of our wildlife, something as important as that is a definite positive and your poem offers this, of which I really like 🙂 Have a wonderful Tuesday Sue 🙂

    Sue, I am going back to the beginning of my inbox and catching up with you. I smile every time I see a new post from you, but then put off reading it until I have time because your writing reaches down to my heart. Unfortunately, what I’ve had lately are those few moments where only a short reply fills that moment.

    Your poem is lovely. I can appreciate this today as it’s much warmer, but yes this winter had been harsh, once things thawed we found damage to the trees we didn’t expect but overall every thing with the exception of the bats survived the winter.
