Life of the Seasons

 As unique as fine crystal, soft shades, reflecting the many hues
 A plethora of color, rainbows appear in yellow, purple and blues
 Rain drops sparkle, like miniature diamonds, set upon the leaves
 The sun embraces an opening, through storm clouds to be seen

 The death of summer's life, births colors of orange, yellow and red
 Struggling to leave an indelible mark, on the mind before it is dead
 Nature gently brushes her paint, procuring such a magnificent array
 Embracing her beauty of existence, before relinquishing to its decay

 A white blanket covering earth, creates regression to Nature’s womb
 Patiently awaiting rebirth, she is placed temporarily in a lifeless tomb
 Beauty in itself, brings visions of cleanliness, before starting life anew
 Washing away omissions of past aggressions, from life she once knew

 Daffodils and crocuses, the bravest children, peer out to see if it is time
 To breathe life back into the earth, initiating her beauty once so sublime
 A struggle to overcome forces of resistance, to make her presence known
 She creates a physical path, for her spring children to prosper and clone

 The lesson is that Nature itself, not just a vision, but a lesson of the mind
 Transitions are an opportunity, to learn from her and not to be so blind
 Sight, of all the five senses, allows us to intimately relate to changes in life
 Assists in revealing secrets of nature, gives hope to prevent further strife
