The Seasons of Love
Predictable, love is not.
What's around the bend, unsure.
If love were a season to select
Which one would you choose?
Quite a swaggering affair.
A tempest one minute,
Beautifully serene the next.
Full of hope and wonder.
Everything exciting and new,
Instilling life and energy.
Warmth seeping into the soul.
Agreeable and content,
Wrapped in comfortable silence.
Bursting at the seams, ready to
Explore and live life to its fullest.
Not wasting a minute, full speed ahead.
For most of us, love is a journey,
A back and forth of the four.
Truly blessed if we experience the
Beauty and challenge of each.

The above is for "Magpie Tales". The top winter scene is the photo prompt. Please click HERE to be transported to either join or read other submissions. I also submitted it to One Stop Poetry's - "One Shot Wednesday".
And speaking of love, who wouldn't want the faithful AND forgiving love of a dog... This is for "Partially Seen in January" and "Black & White Wednesdays."
...and the following photo is for "The Creative Exchange". I have always loved this silhouette and love the fact that Canadian geese mate for life (it kind of fits in with the theme of the poem). One of our favorite family movies is "Fly Away Home" (1996). It stars Jeff Daniels and is about a father, daughter and a flock of Canadian Geese.
