4 (who?)
Springtime's warmth thaws me out,
Sunshine and birds and frogs call to me,
On my belt a leather cup holds my little tripod,
My camera is glad to be shed of winter's chill.

Hot summer days bring thunderstorms,
The sun and rain encourage growth,
I love to photograph the rainbows,
To taste the fresh picked berries.
Frosty autumn evenings come one, then another,
And soon the trees are lit so brightly
It's like tasting a spicy peppermint,
But with eyes tingling instead of tongue.

Then winter's first snow falls,
Peaceful, calm, covering everything,
Then just cold, and cold, and more cold,
I meet each new day with sad, sad surrender.

Till next the warmth calls me out again...
I've not had much online time lately. This past weekend, when I wasn't on the go, I was working extra-time on a work problem that's been ongoing. Today (or more correctly now, yesterday), I had a bit of time online, but didn't even begin to catch up comments, much less devs...

I stumbled across another site where I read a challenge. Similar to :iconelorine:'s writing sparks, this site had a 2-word challenge. You could write anything you want, as long as it has these two words together in it somewhere. Only, they gave you four choices:

summer days, sad surrender, spicy peppermint, leather cup

Whichever one you chose to use, you had to include it in the title as well as within the text of the work. Now, me being the nature lover that I am - lover of ALL seasons, not just one or two, I got "sparked" and this was the result... Not just one of the two-word phrases, but all of them. :)
