    John writes an exciting series of poems on seasons. Each poem not only captures the vagaries of every season but also introspects the poet's mood that changes from winter to Spring. Thanks, John, for sharing this beautiful set of poems. They are a fantastic response to Brenda's week 56 prompt, "Season."The link is as below.

    John, your stunningly ornamental article blew my mind away. I loved the first poem very much and also the acrostic one as well as Robert Frost's poem, "Nothing Gold Can Stay." My favorite quote in the article is by Terri Guillemets. Thanks so much for making my evening so special with such a gorgeous treat.

    Thank you, Ravi, for sharing John's post.

      What an encouraging comment, Rosina. Thank you for your very kind words, and I am always happy when you enjoy what I write. I loved that quote as well.

    Your article with your poems and those of Robert Frost and Carl Sandburg is excellent. I enjoyed all of the poems, and each poem had some special meaning. I love the Christmas season too, so I enjoyed that excellent poem too. Thanks for sharing such a nice selection of poems.

    Thank you for posting John's poems, Ravi.

    John, I absolutely loved reading all of your poems. I'll get angry if you talk about saying goodbye, even in poems. hmm

    I also enjoyed the video you shared. I laughed when you said that you always associate Robert Frost's name with winter. Lol! Yes, it makes sense. big_smile cool
    Thank you for sharing. 

    Take care and stay safe, my friend.
    Many blessings to you and your family. 

    Thanks for sharing, Ravi. smile

    Excellent response John. I enjoyed reading your collection of poems, related to seasons. You have covered many interpretations of the word prompt, and in each one, you have excelled.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Your poem  "What Do the Seasons Mean to You?" paints us quite a picture.
    I love the last few paragraphs of stanzas that show us what you do as your muse brings you those words with each season.

    Both "Nothing Gold Can Say" by Robert Frost and  "Autumn Movement " by Carl Sandburg paints vivid pictures of the seasons.

    Frost proves  to us that even a short poem can be our best one. 

    His won a Pulitzer Prize.

    For some reason, I always think of Winter too... when I say his name...Robert Frost.

    You did a great job on "Your Acrostic Poem ~ Seasons"

    I sometimes wish those Seasons would change and I would have warm temperatures year round.
    Not too hot...just Comfortable, bypassing all those winter storms.

    "Seasonal Haiku" reminds me you are getting ready for those warmer temperatures.

    You've captured each season with your words.

    I must agree with your words in "My Favorite Season"

    Christmas is the best time of the year. 
    It's a time when magic seems to be everywhere.

    Somehow I thought your Christmas was different from mine, but I guess the only thi g different is the season.

    My weather will be cold.

    Great work writing these and sharing s few poems from great Writers.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article

      Hi Brenda. Yes, Frost proved by winning a Pulitzer Prize that poems don’t have to be long. Our Christmases would be similar apart from the weather. We have even celebrated Christmas lunch with a bbq at the beach. Maybe a game of cricket. Christmas Day is usually among the hottest of the year. Thank you for analysing my poems.

    John, you've captured each season perfectly. And as always you find the precisely right images and quotations to go along with your words. (However, it's difficult for me to imagine a Christmas on the beach with a barbecue.)

      Hi Linda, I am glad you believe I captured the seasons well in these poems. Sometimes it takes as long to find the right quotes and images as it does to write the poems. Yes, it must be hard for you to imagine Christmas in summer.

    Hi John. You have a tremendous gift and your work brings joy to our hearts as we read   the words you so beautifully wove together. Thank for sharing your gift.

      Your words humble me, Mary. I just try to put the words together the best way I can. I am glad my poetry brings you joy.

    John has created a lovely collection of poems. My favourite of the four seasons is spring because of the new life that appears, but I love the fact that John has included the Christmas season in his article. That’s a beautiful time as well.

    Wow, John. I just read your "seasons" article. What a rich compilation of your excellent work. I love how you generously featured some of the best poets who wrote on the subject. My favorite was your first about how you incorporate seasons into the craft of writing. That was brilliant. Thanks for the experience.

      Hello Jan, thank you for reading these poems and for your positive comment. Many great poets have written about the seasons so I had to include a couple.

    John, your nature poems pull the reader into the glorious outdoors to enjoy all the beautiful images you create, and the interpretative meanings are not lost at all. Thanks for sharing your excellent poetry. Thanks, Ravi for sharing the link.

      Thank you, MsDora, I enjoy writing about nature and the seasons are a big part of that. I am glad you enjoyed what I wrote.
