Season Out Of Sync

Closing out the year

Another cycle ends

Weather juxtaposed

Last year’s snow

Winter’s dread

Seasons pay no heed to dates

Carving up the calendar

Each claiming their own stake

Signal Fades The Year

Flashes of light to mark the end

Explosions in the sky

Necks craned as colours hypnotize

Fire and sulphurous smoke

Immolate the year’s end



Burn it all away

Resolutions and lost hopes

Scorched away by coloured flame
