Poems about the Seasons
Students - the weather gives and gives. Sometimes it gives us rain and snow when we hope for sun, but it always gives inspiration. On days when I'm unsure what to write about, I look out of my window or take a little walk...and poems are landing on branches, poems are sprouting in gardens, poems are bursting forth everywhere I turn.
When you don't know what to write...go outside. Follow your eyes and ears and heart and listen to the seasons turn slowly, one into the other.
