The lightness and lucidity in the air
coloring, withering, and shedding
leaves are natural grounding care
for the seasons of their lives now heading

Unyielding spirits and the heartbeats
of the trees descend into their storehouse
equilibrate with the ascending Earth’s receipts,
staying vigilant, perceptive, and primed to rouse

A sky in azure stays far and higher,
echoes the bird songs near and afar

The mountains on the placid flow
captured and mirrored as if they’re real
yet the water keeps washing down and low,
reflecting nature’s power and love to heal

The seasons’ metaphors are paradigms
from the bouncing happiness to holding
the ardent passion upon trials of many times
only to strengthen their love to be unfolding

The celebration of the seasons found within,
appreciating the treasures of the world therein
