Seasonal Love Song

I wrote this one quickly and haven't edited it yet. I think I'll let it sit for a day or two and then come back to it.

Seasonal Love song

I love summer
Blue skies
White fluffy clouds
Long days,
Warm nights.

I love fall
Maybe the most.
Cool overnight and into the morning
The way the air feels on my face
Gray clouds
Walking through fallen leaves
Nature changing
Slowly enough
That I can see the transition
From bright greens, red, yellows, purples, pinks, and more
To copper, brown, and gray.
And the change feels right.

I love winter
Snow, ice,
Wearing hat, gloves, and a warm jacket
Walking, running
Seeing my breath puff
Feeling the cold on my nose
My ears
And tingle my throat as I breathe.
Starry nights,
Cold mornings.

I love spring
Another season of change
Going from cold to warm
Death to life
Days get longer
Nights get shorter
Rain and wind
Birth and growth
Colors begin to appear
Almost overnight
A new surprise nearly every day.
And the journey continues
Towards summer.
