Seasons of Love


Love is like an autumn
Dark, dreary and solemn
You wish it to be over soon
Yet it uneasily dwells
Loving to linger longer in us


Love is like winter
Cold, dull, lifeless and bitter
You wish it will never come
Yet it comes to test us
Our limits of endurance


Love is like a spring
Colorful, happy and blooming
You wish to savor every bit of it
Wanting it to be unending
Yet it is not lasting


Love is like summer
Warm, amusing, full of fun
You wish it stays eternal
But like all other seasons in life
It gives happiness though ephemeral


Seasons of love
They come and go
To usher in a new love
Another challenge
Another victory
A new beginning
A new failure
A new heartache
A new hope
A cycle reflecting the changing seasons 
Of our existence in this mortal world!

  23. Hi Amity, I like the way you compare the moods of love to the seasons. Love can be all these things, including fickle. Yet we try and try again.

    Have a good day. My best, Rob.

  24. Amity, You are right, mine is an autumn. (happy it's past tense, too!)

  25. Dear Amity,
    NAMASTE!
    Good Evening!
    Lovely lines on Love and so touching!When each season gets over we have the pains and pleasures!
    Without love,we can't exist!
    In Kerala,there is rainy season too.We call it Monsoon Season.
    When the raindrops fall,
    The nature is at its best!
    The green plants flourish and grow,
    And love grows in each mind!
    Wishing you a beautiful and lovely night,
    Sasneham,
    Anu

  31. LOve is indeed like the seasons, i know how it blossomed like a spring flower, warmed me like the winter sun, rained for months, and slipped away like fallen leaves but it is still carefully presevered between the pages of memories... like the most beautiul rose...

    Very nicely pictured Amity :)

  57. Hi Amity ~~ I like your seasons of love. They are most descriptive.
    I wasn't happy to read of the cycles part (I am on my second). I'd rather just one--from spring through autumn. :)
    ..
    I did finish mine. It is a non-, wanna be-, poem.

  58. Hi Jim;

    What do you mean you are on your second? And why not happy on the cycles part?

    You don't want summer?

    Thanks Jim for your violent reactions.... :) Peace!!!

    Sure, will be reading your take too though not a wanna be as you said!

  59. Love has her seasons. Why cling to eternal summer, when the cycle is so invigorating. Beautiful observations!
