|Warning: Poetic devices are often contagious, |
even to seasonally pleading vegetation.
Hope flutters like a wet moth --
Golden Summer brings
On bright heat and strawberry skin --
Thoughts are lethargic.
Thunder raises up
Hazy Autumn intentions --
Fresh snow marks Winter
Leaving narcissus fever --
Under the weather.
