This is a fun game I like to play on Fridays!  The assignment:  write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word, and then link up with others doing the same.  Check them out by clicking on the ‘5 Minute Friday’ button at the bottom.

Today’s topic:  When Seasons Change


Fall, and spring. . . my favorite seasons, between the extremes.  Fall is my birthday. . . a deep sigh before the long winter begins.  Colors.  Autumn hues, and harvest colors.  And the verdure of spring. . . how many shades of green are there?  Lush, vibrant, renewal as the world comes alive again.

Flowers, purple lilacs, yellow daffodils, hot pink peonies, velvet iris.  Color of creativity, a palette of potential, create in me a clean heart, a portrait of spring, of the changing of the seasons.  I’m ready for renewal!

And yet the seasons are changing colors in me as well.  I’m not ready for the autumn. . . I have dreams of carefree summer, of delicate blush of spring, and I’m not ready for the freeze of winter.  So, I’m going to go fly a kite after I smell those fading lilac blooms, and enjoy this day. . . this one moment in the changing seasons.

Always springtime in this autumn-loving heart of mine!
