Tinker Posted February 13, 2018 Share Posted February 13, 2018 Sunshine Girl In my Spring I flew across the meadow, my mare's mane the standard with a blur of brilliance, gold and blue blossoms on lush green, trampled under her hooves. With Summer came the spark of love, the heat of lust and the fierce fire of holding a babe in my arms. The slow burn of building a family was all consuming. Autumn brought quieter but busy days, my last horse died, my son left to blaze his own path and I had a business to establish. The harvest, a huge success, grandkids, money, and a new passion, poetry. The brittle cold of Winter has been a bath of ice water to this sunshine girl. Broken bones, cancer, and threat of losing my life long love. Still, the sun comes up, peeks through the clouds and calls to me to put on my warmest coat and get out there. ~~Judi Van Gorder Prompt: The Power of Connotation, Write a poem about the changing of the seasons using connotation to inject fuller flavor.
