Seasonal Ache

The seasons have an ache
For more.
Summer has desire
For the drenching
Of heat.
Autumn has a need
For wiping away
Long days,
Wanting only
Crisp
Clean lines and
Shadow,
Leaving you to
Enter the cave
Of self made
Warmth.
Winter arrives with
An empty fan fare
Of the white
Wind whispers
And need to share
Space and body;
Cuddles,
Closeness,
Quiet Books.
Drawing all in
As you nurture
Self
And in its finding
Of your mind
Lets go swiftly,
Setting free for Spring
To feel and touch again.
Spring frolics,
Each day more and more
Until it becomes too much
So full,
So heavy with the bounty
Of beauty
And cherished things
That it rises
With joy
To welcome
The overwhelming
Burning,
Baking,
Drenching,
Heat
Of Summer
Once again.
