    The title of your poem reminds me of the lyrics to "Year of the Cat" by Al Stewart. It is vividly descriptive.

    Superb use of imagery, James! I like the way you use the colors to describe the change of seasons. Best to you, Diane

    The image of the watercolor paints falling down the canvas in the rain is beautiful, James. Different colors evoke images of different seasons. I love fall colors. Your choice of colors/seasons is believed to say something about your personality. Well done, James! Love, Carolyn
