Four Seasons (for Tadpole Contest)

by Kimberly Bare

tiny blossoms shake
in the gentle rains of spring
new awakenings

star-studded heat
settles over shrubbery
wild wings flutter

flurry of fallen
leaves are kaleidoscopic
prepare for slumber

stark, barren land
softened by the weight of
fresh fallen snow

these are so great! I especially like autumn (evening slumber, and the greater slumber of the natural world as it prepares for winter) & (kaleidoscope of leaves! yes!) and winter with the softening of winter's barrenness by the snow. the spring one is also very cute & true, and the summer one hints at coolness to be found in shadows. So glad to have this as an entry in the Tadpole contest! yay! great job

i love this, autumn is wonderfully brilliant! i am sure that this will be unmatched in the contest, however even if it is not the winner there, it is in my heart. :0)

These are great instant captures of the seasons. My favorite is winter - the contrast between the stark and barren landscape softened by the snow is simply marvelous!
