Cycle of life

DSCF2062See the trees with skeletal frame

looking limp and rather frail

when colours fade and leaves begin falling

still they stand quite exposed

naked and without any clothes

dreading the time of snow and frost

when all dignity is lost

Wintertime can be so harsh.


But come springtime

when they again begin to flourish

and nature it begins to nourish

in summer months they’re in full bloom

autumn alas will arrive too soon.

(c) Chris Black.

A poem from my book of poetry and short stories.

Anyone looking for a stocking filler you are welcome
