is love alive?

in spring
when newborn tendrils struggle
to find their way through cold earth

in summer
when the sun’s lips brush across open blossoms
hot,  like a lover’s kiss

in autumn
when leaves become weary and fall
onto the ground so hard

in winter
when all becomes quiet
within the snow’s embrace

our love
defies the seasons

  1. Ah.. every season has their positive aspect of love.. what a upliifting poem to read.

  2. Love is a thing for all seasons, indeed. I love the weary leaves–so well-expressed. Good to see you making the rounds again, Dani.

  3. Love ~ not only alive but ever growing ♥

    Thank you dani ♥ for sharing this Beautiful poem.

  4. This is such a cool poem, SP. I especially love the summer stanza. Taken together with the music (how do you keep finding such cool songs?) this is one of your coolest posts ever!

  5. It’s been a while since I read one of your poems and this one is just perfect: love should be immune to the seasonal changes.

  6. First of all I like the picture… I can see why you were inspired by ” is love alive”, and I love the ending!!!!

  7. Love, I love love that enters and emerges from every landscape. The picture, the song, the words–match beautifully.

  8. Defies, yes — and for that, for some odd reason, deifies. Love is citizen of all seasons, sums them all. Nice.

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
