••> OK, NaPoWriMo 2011 is now behind us, time to resume our weekly writing party here on the Island. The Week #19 prompt for 2011 is “SEASON”, inspired by this older collage of mine entitled “Seasons”.

After the rigors of creating a poem a day during April’s National Poetry Month here in the US, thought I’d keep it light and pleasant with a reflection on season. Where I live, Spring is late in coming and for those in the southern hemisphere, it’s Fall; but I think we all find the change of seasons welcome and refreshing, so take a deep breath, and wax on about one or all of them. And remember, season can have meanings beyond that of the cyclical calendar periods — so maybe surprise us.

Relax, respond to the prompt when you’re ready — or just leave a comment to say hi! As always, welcome to the the Island!!! 😉
