"Four Seasons Tree" Illustration from “Four Seasons Tree”
Illustration from

seasons of self
have the good sense
to fade when
seasons of love
come vivid in bloom
call us out
of ourselves
turn the inward
to outward
make tending to lovers
our driving desire

seasons of self
behave gallant
recede behind
seasons of family
keep calendars
open inviting
our loved ones
to mark up their
want of our time
and affection
that earn the true
value of happiness

giving ourselves
fortifies virtue
with certain nobility
lifting the status
of love in its forms
to prime catalyst
sparking the utmost
fulfillment of
human experience
even when love-borne pain
works its terrible hold
on the heart
