Seasonal Love

Seasonal Love

By Rebecca Braun. 

Fresh and new,
flowering Love’s view
with growing buds,
 and trees,
I saw Spring in you.

Skin flushed and burned,
fiery kisses returned
from hot moist air,
sun bleached hair,
Summer looked good on you.

Leaves tumbled and rolled,
chilling winds
took their toll
on auburn hearts,
bleeding and breaking apart,
Autumn said good-bye to you.

Now frozen nights
drag on and on,
lonely silence
in the cold gray dawn.
Love buried
beneath miles of ice
and snow,
there is no surviving Winter
without you.


Becky grew up in the Midwest, and now resides in Eagan, Minnesota, with her loyal border collie, May. They enjoy long walks and snowshoeing in the winter. She believes her writing inspiration comes through walking a spiritual path and being open to the universe. In her first life she taught music for over twenty years. Now, she is pursuing her second life and passion, writing.
