A Single Year And A Lifetime

Spring is a birth of new life,

Fresh buds upon hands and knees,

Late intense sunset highlighting life.

Followed at last by

The Summer ability to procreate. 

 As a dashing gentleman

Doffs his tilted hat

To a lovely lady. 

Too soon the body fails.

  At last, camouflaged in burnt orange and yellow, 

Life’s bitter aches and pains, with cold, 

Early sunsets

As nature’s pimples

Concede the spotlight to its wrinkles. 

A 4:00 p.m. sunset is a funeral

With snow and ice as its pall.
