Cycle of Seasons

I decided to write a series of haiku (3 haiku per season) chronicling the "Cycle of Seasons." My intention was to simply include the 12 haiku in one poem. When it came time to post, I thought it might be too busy having all 12 in one poem, so I created 4 haiku to represent each season. Now I've included all 12 haiku in one poem, as I originally intended and now prefer. Now you know the method to my madness 



Cycle of Seasons


vernal equinox pollen proliferation spring rebirth affirmed busy bees buzzing beautiful birds building nests winter gloom erased dormant seeds take root blossoms bloom birdsong elates spring nearing its end summer solstice comes verdant landscape sandy beach families frolic short summer showers heat and humidity reign sunlight lingers on temperatures lag cheerful chirping of crickets last gasp of summer autumn equinox turning leaves migrating birds early morning chill leaf peeping pastime harvest cornucopia real time falls behind fall’s first killing frost season of melancholy cold of winter near winter solstice comes bare trees long hibernation don’t risk bleeding lips gardens lie fallow field mice attempting entry long dark frigid nights snowfall slowly melts winter giving way to spring first mosquito bite
