Poetry: “Seasonal wear”

Though it is not entirely summer themed, it is at least summer influenced.

***~***~***~***

Seasonal wear

We clothe ourselves in cocoons
When summer turns to fall
Wrapped in cozy layers
To weather winter’s cold

We cower still in springtime
Untrusting of the sun
As any moment she might leave
And fill the air with rain

But then much like the butterflies
As days become more warm
We slowly shed out cocoons
And reveal our colors bright

We flutter on through summer
In light and easy wear
Until the chill winds from the north
Force us down to earth
