Seasons End

In spring he complained It was always way to wet The sound of chirping birds Would make him get upset He thought summer is drier But when summer came it was hot It was a far far worse season At least that's what he thought Perhaps he'd prefer the autumn Cooler air and shorter days Still the problem with autumn Is that autumn rarely stays Soon winter was upon him He could feel it within his bones Buried deep beneath the ground They covered his grave with stones For him the seasons were a problem He wasted away all his days What was gifted was extraordinary Yet it never met with any praise! Written April 7th 2016 For Shadow's Seasons Contest.

Hmmmm! Good metaphor of season on Earth with seasons of life and what the lean to the negative gets us instead of the attitude, "I can't wait to see what happens next"! I am pleased you won a placement for this I enjoyed it!

We always want something different over what's currently happening ... internally dissatisfied, and the masters of criticism. Manmath is right, in that this is a very different take, as you went down a much more somber, thought-provoking road. Always a reason in mind with your pen. Great read.

Humans possess what is called a negativity bias. We can have a perfectly good day and if something bad happens, that bad thing s the only thing we remember. To overcome this we have to give intential thought to the good things in our lives. Thanks for the thoughtful response Timothy.

Dear Richard, It is completely different type of poem on seasons. very nice presentation....with love

Negativity can be the downfall of many Richard. I positively believe that is true.
