What is winter without summer?

Or rather, summer without winter?


Though a year apart, one cannot deny the need for one another

Though opposite, they do attract.

Longer days, shorter days,

Without one, each will wait in vain,

To see each other,

To correct the misguided length of day.


Thoughts of summer warm the chill of winter.

Thoughts of winter cool the heat of summer.

Each makes each other fair and mild.

Complete, delightful. Perfect.


Winter writhe the trees in pain.

Summer sparks the trees into flames.

With each other, they meet in between,

Spring and fall, far less of the extremes.


Summer brings the best in winter

Winter brings the best in summer

Like summer and winter,

And like you and like me.
