Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter

She comes into your life and brings nature’s blessing. And with her entrance comes a curse of wanton passion. The grass is still alive as it blazes in the sun. The chorus of our laughter floats gently in the Spring breeze. We are the definition of love and our hands are linked as we dance amongst the growing and the grown alike. We enjoy timeless sunsets on picturesque settings creating canvases waiting to be painted at each moment. We love.

Time works wonders and bonds grow firm. We resolve to walk quietly into the night together. Hands held tightly against the shadows we once faced alone. We pick each other up in the heat of the Summer, against the blazing sun and humanity’s punishment. We turn as one, in unison with one another’s needs. I am your need and you are mine. And like an oak tree we grow together.

The rain has come and we have weathered storms. We still touch… but sometimes our hands Fall like leaves from our tired limbs. The chatter of children running around our base keeps us united, we are still united with finger painted signs and chalk figures. But some nights are cold and the moon shines two shadows upon the ground.

It snows here in Denver. The Winter seems to be most of the year… at least lately. But even with the constant ice, it does melt with the strength of will. A will we share each morning and return to each night. The seasons form a timeless ring that hardens into a golden promise. They touch each time our hands unite with infused emotion. Regardless of what emotion that is the presence of feelings means that we still care.

  1. Hi Jason.
    I would like to let you know that you’re one of the few that I have decided to put on my list for the “Blogger Recognition Award” because of the great things that you do in the blogosphere and for all the support you give to newbies like us.

    Here’s the link to it if you’d like to check it out: https://myldrwithafrenchman.wordpress.com/2017/01/23/blogger-recognition-award/

    I know that some people have an “award-free blog” or are just too busy to do these things and I understand completely if you don’t participate. I just want to share this as a gesture of my appreciation.

    More power to you! I hope you don’t get tired of helping others.
    You have quite a generous heart like Danny (@DBDO). 🙂

  3. ya, for me Winter is a Time for reflection for wisdom, Spring is a Time for renewal and mating, Summer is a Time for travel & fun and Fall is a Time for gathering up one’s needs to survive the Winter!
