Nature’s Journey

Oh, how awesome is the spring,
Ah yes, spring is indeed prettiest!
Fresh green leaves peeking out,
From a tiny twig that seemed almost lifeless,
And frail little buds seeking to bloom,
And every life that seemed dead and gone
Open their eyes to live! To live!
Embracing the warm- not so harsh sun,
Oh, how each of them springs to life?!
And embrace youth all over again…
A new beginning, a clean slate,
For the nature to start afresh.

Then, summer comes- it’s time to work,
Photosynthesis at its peak.
The dazzling bright scorching heat,
Is time for plants to make some meals.
The delicate little buds are gone, and
Flower are blooming at its brightest,
Red Tulips, redder red than blood.
Beautiful white dandelions- happy and dancing,
As Blue Jay sings its melodious tunes.
Small boys come out to swim,
In rivers as blue as the vast sky.
It’s the liveliest of season,
Time nature works hard and, parties harder.

Then, autumn comes and leaves fall,
Clouds of gloom- looms over the nature.
Fruits ripen and it’s beautiful,
So, time has come, for them to fall.
The dried leaves cover the grass,
It’s time to reunite with the soil.
There are still some greens left,
Such a beautiful color of life,
The innocent color of youth,
But the beautiful orange steals the show.
And oh yes, there’re the gorgeous browns,
Some as dark as the bark itself,
Some little light browns-clinging to their youthful days.
Autumn, I say- is like an old pair of jeans
Holding stories of the entire year,
Rough, rugged and- all set, for any storm coming by.

And when the winter comes and it snows,
The harshest of weather for the greens.
This is where you understand,
How important Autumn is!
All the greens withered and gone,
Only things standing are strong.
They can bear the coldest nights,
Or wrath of furious hailstorms.
While bear are off to hibernate,
And birds fly away to somewhere warm,
It’s these rooted beings that stand,
Through coldest of nights- tall, proud & fearless.

For NaPoWriMo Day 25.

    You;ve got to love the energy that ripples through your poetic tour of the seasons here! You are on a roll it looks like, creatively speaking. It is interesting that you start with spring, which has all the potential for growth. Hopefully when the northern hemisphere really does reach winter later this year, the world will have healed at last and it becomes closer to the youthful, beautiful vision you have painted in words for us here. Thank you Shreya.
