Haiku: Spring to Winter

Year of the Horse Contest for September. 188 words. For MRP.


green buds thrive in spring
love shapes our long years falling
moving back in time

I give you my love
hard true high and passionate
you held in my arms

in love's pure circumference
geometry burns colder
than hottest passion

for only true love
and all that can mean for two
leaving us breathless

yes I have loved you
more than love can simply mean
burning with desire

never-changing love
still memories move in time
love holds its place still

summer's mellow months
love's made a dream of favor
warm hours in reprieve

when love's so perfect
when time passes slowly by
when our love is all

moving on in time
love's dance of days remembers
time's forgetfulness

days fly quickly past
fast changes move us forward
love will try to last

fall so short in love
a chilling time all too long
strain of love’s colors

love knows its boundaries
those harsh words in haste speak ends
more words cannot save

your hand clasping mine
a warmth that spoke of our love
all emptiness now

winter walks at night
love's long ago memory
leaves no warm embrace



'Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time
          -- A Case of You
               Joni MItchell
