SundayStills – March 21 Color Challenge: Spring Greens

But we are heading into Autumn!!  

The snow is melting in the northern hemisphere
The spring sap is greening the leaves of the trees
Whilst  here down under deep in the South
The leaves are changing, colouring and falling

Winter is coming, it is time to reset the clock
So these few glimpses of Springtimes long gone
Are all that I will have to keep me cosy and warm.
Oh what am I to do? 
Yes- its back to an archive or two.

I really don’t mind a trip down memory lane 
As I have many unedited  images languishing in vain.
So I try to stay  ’focused’ on the task ahead.
And play with those images to shine their light in this thread.
The changing  seasons of our lives
Are captured through lenses that remain bright
Seasons are just a bringer of a different kinds of light
To illuminate our days or shine moonlight through the night.

And if we are lucky the sun will send 
Lady Aurora to bedazzle our skies.
So even on a cloudless, moonless night, 
there will still be green lights
Skies of green

With this in mind, I remembered this song from 1965.. still relevant in these pandemic times maybe…

TURN, TURN, TURN

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from embracing

To everything (turn, turn, turn)
There is a season (turn, turn, turn)
And a time to every purpose, under heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sow
A time for love, a time for hate
A time for peace, I swear it's not too late.

"The Byrds, 1965"

So until Spring next graces us with her presence 

I’ll set my mind on finding the light wherever it may be

  1. Liana, your poem adds so much to the post. You are quite a poet. Do you participate in Tanka Tuesday? If not, you might like it. Your mountain picture of the mountain is stunning and cold. It must be a spring show. Our mountains have no snow in the fall. 🙂
