My Seasonal Boo(s)

This is the 2nd in a Trilogy of 'My Great Loves'
Summer
Your love is the warmth of summer, you’re the pick-me-up friend! How many a party have we attended? How many a laughter have we shared? Your love like the summer heat can be too much it will burn, but without it, we yearn for it! You have a knack to bring out the child in us your friends, you’re boisterous, you’re loud, you declare the attention but you never forget those important to you. You might get lost in yourself, yes Summer my friend you can be narcissistic, but let us tell you and you amend your ways. You've promised to do a happy dance/rain dance/'Buhle' dance when I get some happy sexing!..lol..Many-a-truth is said in jest isn’t it Summer? You will say it sweetly, making sure no-one’s hurt, you choose the words all so careful, for after all you just want every-one to be happy!

Autumn

My friend dearest Autumn. You prepare us for Winter’s harshness, you’re luke-warm. The impartial friend, you have no sides and fairness is your game. Even when I’m begging for you to tell me I’m right you outline where I’ve gone wrong and give me a solution…you could write a handbook on friendship for you are such a great friend that sometimes we forget to be YOUR friend and expect you to be our friend..you’ll stop calling just to see if we will call you back and you know we always do! Oooh Autumn, special autumn, even though you shed the beauty of Summer away, you’re prepping us for tougher times!

Winter

They say you’re harsh and brutal. Cold, dry and miserable but that’s because they don’t know that inside lies a hidden warmth. You’re the brutally honest friend, you don’t make it all rosy, harsh reality, constructive criticism I come to you for and guaranteed you’ll give it! Your heart is all mushy to those you’ve allowed in and without you they are lost! You’re the friend who encourages me to take a good look at myself, you keep me grounded, reminding me that should fame come my way, there are certain things I should never change!

Spring :

The friend that soothes me after Winter has been harsh to me!You remind me of the joys of friendship, that if there was never any conflict then it wouldn’t be friendship. You’re the pacifier, you resolve conflicts. The reliable friend who would give up the shirt on their back just to clothe a friend!
I don't use the term 'friend' loosely, to me friendship encompasses empathy, sympathy, truth, encouragement, being there for one another and mutual understanding!

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather! My seasonal boos, as another season blends in with the next, trees have their leaves back, the flowers show off their beauty, we all accept that in order to be who we are, and to get on as we do its because of the different elements of our own individual beauty that make our bond so strong! To all my friends I love you!! I’ve also made some great friends here on Blogville, you guys are wonderful..love ya..and as always Happy Sexing xoxo

I love this !!!! its so true

Temite said...

well. This was really brilliant. But I think no one is ever completely one season. we all blend and change and become which season is neccessary. SO Shona, what kind of season are you?
I think I am the perfect blend of summer and winter. One minute trying to get you to see yourself clearly and the other minute being my narcisistic self. Well happy sexing to you to my dear.

MissLove said...

a new perspective shona!!! happy sexing! loves it!

MissLove said...

H2O-works said...

1st time here, and I must say, this is a great welcome..rest assured I'll be a regular visitor here...friendship is such a beautiful thing, often times we take it for granted...this is a soothing reminder that it's ok to have friends that are somewhat different from us because we are part of our friends and our friends are part of us...thanks for sharing

ciao

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

blogville is great. and every whether was created for a purpose. there is nothing God created that is not beneficial to us. if we check closely, we will see it is true

Geebee said...

Part 2 of the trilogy hits me like a grand slam. Wao, another superb piece. The separation and existence of seasons are just another evidence to God’s awesome strength. Autumn, Winter, Spring, Summer (In Naija, it’s Dry and Wet season) . . . they all have their downsides but in all, we can hardly do without them one way or the other. They are indeed ‘Great Loves’

naijaleta said...

People say I'm strange whenever I tell them that I prefer winter to summer. One thing I love about winter is the fact that the nights are longer. This makes you sleep for a longer period. The sun is gonna start coming up at 4a.m now and I really hate that. Not to talk of hay fever.

Sexkitten said...

I'm just going to echo what's already said... this piece is brilliant. I absolutely love it.

Bibi said...

very good. and insightful too. i'm a first timer but i like what i see and i will definitely be back. nice one

wordmerchant said...

hey girl..hope your feeling better now, get well soon xx

Funms-the rebirth said...

hey Shona, just checking up on you.... take care

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

wow, can't believe I only red this today. Very lovely, Ms. Shona. How you dey?

LondonDiva said...

Like I told you over the weekend....DAMN!!!!

Where does the inspiration come from when you write girl? Very poetic and so on point. I was thinking about my friends when reading this and thinking...nope, nope, nope, nope...LOL. Cha!! you know from my rants I leave those girls to do their thing and concentrate on being my own Four Seasons to myself.

Off topic: you do NOT look your age at all!!!!!!
