Seasons

Were taught that there are seasons

Like winter

Summer

Fall

And spring

We’re told that we should love them

Because of the wonders that they bring

Winter brings cold

With snow that gleams and shines

While Summer brings the heat

From a sun that feels so fine

Fall brings cozy sweaters

And kids in costume on Halloween

Then spring brings a breath of life

And opens our eyes to the beauty that should be seen

There are seasons of our life

Like there are seasons of the earth

The seasons of our lives

Are unpredictable from birth

We can only guess

What season we’re in

Be it winter, summer, spring, or fall

But they each bring some clarity

To help us understand

The purpose behind our call

I do not know

What season I’m in

And I could probably never tell you

When it started or when it will end

But I have learned to laugh

And I have learned to dream

I have learned to appreciate

The little things

But after all I have learned

Be it good or bad

Learning to love

Is a skill that I lack

I know what Love is

And I know that it’s there

And I know my heart is full of it

Ready to be shared

But perhaps I am in winter

Or maybe even fall

A season where life is waiting

And beauty will soon cover all

I am not sad about this

Because I know the breath will come

And just like the warmer season

Life will flourish under the sun

I feel the heat already

And I can see the beauty coming near

But for now I will enjoy the season I’m in

Because I know God’s timing will be clear

My name is Erin and I like all things beautiful - beautiful art, beautiful music, beautiful writing, etc. I like to write because as much as I enjoy talking, I can be pretty lousy at it. I'm currently attending graduate school in small-town Indiana while involved in a full-time job of daydreaming with some writing on the side. You'll find that most of my writing will have some sort of advice or positive encouragement, but I write like that because I believe the world is full of too much negative news that I don't want to contribute to - I want to be a spreader of good news. So that's what I'm here for. I'm here as a believer of good things, a lover of all things beautiful, and a spreader of joy.
