Seasons

                                             Skittery sketches
                                             As fireflies flitter –
                                             Billowing blossoms
                                             Of flowering plum.

                                             Glistening goblets
                                             With cold-sweat glitter –
                                             Blistering blazes
                                             Cicada fly hum.

                                             Willowy whispers
                                             As cattails quiver –
                                             Glimmering glower
                                             Of man in the moon

                                             Blustery breezes
                                             Will make us shiver –
                                             Shimmering shadows
                                             Lie carefully strewn.
