Mr D, firstly I hope this has been nominated because I know I'm too late with it being Sunday.
Secondly, the title leaves much to the readers imagination as 'seasonal winds' in my mind could have been interpreted as in up and down moods but maybe I was reading too much into things and it just hits home to me how deeply I'm struggling at the moment with everything I'm going through and how much of a 'brave face' I'm putting on for the people I love but this could be relatable for many others, though I know you'll understand how I interpreted this from your title anyway I digress.
The actual content is one of passing seasons but to me it's not just about that but also about the growing of age aswell and one that seasons come and go and unless we make a change those 'seasons' still stay around within us not just the usual winter, spring etc but the ones within our minds aswell like me for instance atm my mind is a depressive one and at one point I'd overcome it alot but as in my teenage years poem because I'm having trouble with my self esteem atm because life is rubbish it just comes flooding back, I hope this makes sense and I'm probably far off but just my interpretation.
Take care Mr and I hope you and your family are well.
Thanks, Em. Xx Your interpretation is right. Now I'm half a century, I look back in my life/seasons and it seems the seasonal/ years are passing/ blowing by increasingly quickly. Now I'm in my Autumn years, I fear the death of Winter and so I cling/ make each day count, because, only now, am I able to appreciate life. I only wish I had reached this stage in the summertime.
I love that "now" is on a separate line, and that this is in the life category, not nature. The "cling to" makes me think of times when we try to adapt and "go with the flow", holding on to anything and everything to continue. And even though the air is chilly, the warmth has receded, you'll find something new in the autumn. Because, life is like that. Sometimes it moves without regard and we have no choice but to accept it and move with it.
