This Time Of Year - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Every year at this time I feel this way
A certain vicissitude predominates my mood
Reminiscence outweighs current ambiance
Decades of familiarity deluge the contemporary
The first crocus awakens my optimism
The initial sunburn stimulates painful youth
Autumn’s shift in hue gloriously demoralizes
December’s rime deadens and festoons
Each day transports in its own way
A pristine encounter, a distinctive sequential impression
A recognizable twinkling of yesteryear
Each day resounds distinctively, yet recognizable
Every instance at this time of year

    It touched my heart. August,2015 played a very important role in my life. I shall never forget it. I shall write a farewell address for it. (Report) Reply

    This time of year is okay with me, Kelly. I like autumn and winter too. Nicely penned. (Report) Reply

    The poem spoke of any time, being this time of the year. It will be in the90s here all week. I don't particularly like that.: -)
