Seasoning

    Four Seasons in One Day from Open Source Images

After drooping heat,
grey autumn rain chills into
winter’s mocking snow
which settles on bud and shoot.
That’s April in Wisconsin.


This is for PAD Day #11 and the Imaginary Garden, sort of.

  4. Works for the northeast, too! Just a week ago we were getting snow showers, sleet and freezing rain on Wednesday night! Spring can definitely be four seasons in one! Perfectly captured!

  12. Ah, the cycle of the seasons —reminding us that it is natural for one set of circumstances to give way to the next, as the wheel turns.

  16. Thanks everyone. I didn't really follow the prompt at IGRT, this was more of PAD. I've been reading some amazing stuff of yours, and if I haven't yet I will today. What a talented bunch of toads! Thank you again for your comments.
