Heather Burns

A Changing Emotion (revised)

Infatuation is ever fleeting,
as a cloud drifting by. Like
a tree developing buds,
leaves turning from green to
gold, then brown.

Finally the wind blows them
to the ground. They lay there
returning to the earth and
they are gone.

As a lady changing her attire.
putting on taking off her
makeup, so is infatuation.

Ever changing like the seasons
from warm to hot, then cool
finally cold.

Cool in the Spring, warming
for Summer hot and passionate.
Autumn winds tend to cool off
preparing for the icy gusts
of winter.

Images of what was, but is no
more. a changing emotion.

    Great attention to imagery and metaphor. Was surprised that a poem with such classical form had no rhyme, but I guess that can easily be rectified! :) (Report) Reply

    Awesome read dear Heather ma'am. I liked the way you described women and her emotions.
    And the magnifying end of the masterpiece portrayed the ressolution of the protagonist. (Report) Reply

    Everything changes, sometimes for the better sometimes not.
    Most of the changes are out of our control. A great poem. (Report) Reply

    We can change lot of things but dont let we changed by things..stay true as self...emotion is always clothes of our souls but the same character is still us, even leaves changed it colors they cant never be a stick or flowers...somehow a diversity of changes in us make life more spice and tastier...i love this write _Soul (Report) Reply

    Infatuations don't last long like buds, flowers, and leaves. They are like changing attire. Beutifully expressed the changing of emotion. Thank you. (Report) Reply
