Anticipation

May will bring hummingbirds
Roses in June
July if we’re fortunate
Will sing freedom’s tunes
August will find us in sweltering heat
Wishing for breezes to give us reprieve
September rewards us with what we have sown
The fruits we have planted abundantly come
October the trees wave a flamboyant goodbye
Then falling they bow to the earth and sky
November reminds us of all that we have
December we celebrate the babe who came
Each season cycles and we cherish each one
But the return I am seeking is the return of God’s Son

Linking to dversepoets.com open link night and Napowrimo.net Day 30. Prompt…”I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something that returns.”

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.

    A delightful trip through the months and seasons, Mary! I especially enjoyed:
    ‘September rewards us with what we have sown
    The fruits we have planted abundantly come
    October the trees wave a flamboyant goodbye
    Then falling they bow to the earth and sky’.
    I love autumn!

    A beautiful recap of the seasons, and ending with what it’s really all about.
