The Seasons - Rhyming Haiku

icy kiss of death
frozen on sweet autumn’s breast
winter’s frosty breath   

frozen crystal spears
melting in a thousand tears
joyful spring is here

what were buds on trees
live there dreams in lush green leaves
kissed by summer breeze

life begins to wane
summer bursting into flames
autumn’s sweet refrain

Author:  Elaine Cecelia George, of Canada
