    ROOTS OF LOVE:
    PASSION

    Summer's sudden passing
    retains a lingering breeze:
    leaves fall to rest gently upon dormant soil;
    electric blue skies display new symbols:
    v-shapes in white wings pointing south.
    I wonder: has this season's flow
    of spring and summer love perished
    or flown south also in migration?
    Will it return with the sun of spring
    when this land re-awakens another season?

    Or is it that in every spring breeze
    there is a rebirth of new love,
    to grow and mature naturally
    and blend once more within earth's soil
    following autumn's sudden storms?

    Deep within I seek the answer:
    I search my face
    in each moment of darkness faced,
    in each fear overcome,
    in every footstep walked on barren ground,
    in every sound of mocking laughter –
    What do I see?
    I see the time I allowed passion
    to grow powerfully within my heart,
    enriching my earth roots
    as if I too were a seasoned tree.

    That is what keeps my love
    alive, renewed, vibrant
    through each change of season.
    For once I sought love for its own sake;
    now love is what I AM.

    Yeah you said that good! The way you make us think about the season characteristics in relation to the course of a relationship with someone is just so deep blue sea. You definitely got my mind swimming and I like drowning in the waves of your words!
