Magpie Tale #36-Prisoned Inside

Prisoned inside,
My imagination has gone for a wild ride.
*
Budding tree leaves,
Bursting blossoms,
Bubbling breeze,
Brain-storming classrooms.
This is Spring!
*
Blue pools,
Bright skies,
Banned Schools,
Burning desires.
This is Summer.
*
Brown earth,
Beaming faces,
Beautiful births,
Blasting graces,
This is Autumn.
*
Blowing snow,
Barren fields,
Bittersweet frost,
Bare trees.
This is Winter.

Rene/ Not The Rockefellers said...

I loved this snapshot of all four seasons...it reminds me of a picture that was in my house as I was growing up

Dom* said...

The vibrant colours have no longer here
The bite of the air becomes crystal clear
The dead of season draws upon
The material world outside the snow will sit on
But there is hope as spring will come again
To start all over as it did then...

Great Poem Jingle and Happy Thursday to ya(+)

What a brilliant image of someone inside yearning and recalling the seasons. It makes me wonder who this person is and why she or he must stay inside.

Hi Jingle,

Thanks for the visit! That's how I feel right now: prisoned inside! (I feel I'm dying a slow death from pneumonia LOL) Joking aside your poetry is a blessing. Thanks for sharing.
