Four verses describing a scene through the seasons.
Seasons

'redbud pods rattle'



Redbud blooms.
Southern breezes promise
sun and warmth.

Sweat lingers, drips
in sweet cool shade
that chills.

Geese visit,
peck in the cornfields,
move on.

Redbud pods rattle.
In the shade of a drift,
a dried corncob.

Note: I have a group of poems I call 'seasons'. There are four verses. Each has seasons in sequence (may begin in any season). The last uses images of the first three to bring it all together. It should be a scene that is noticed in different ways throughout the year. The verses can repeat the same poetic form or not. This one uses the concept of a haiku as a 'guide'.
