Four Seasons - The Complete Series by Ashlee CraftFour Seasons

the magic of fall & the falling of leaves

the changing of seasons & the changing of trees
cozy & beautiful autumn
with images of the seasons yet to come
dancing with the fall leaves & the cool air
the warmth surrounding you everywhere
thanksgiving cornucopias, trick-or-treat
before sitting down for a family feast

the first snowflake gently falling
warmth, magic, & joy of the season calling
hot cocoa & a blanket by the fireplace
winter decorations filling each space
holiday memories, walking thru the snows
believing in Santa, watching caroling shows
the aroma of pine trees & cookies around
a season for giving & love & hope abound

the air is full of new life’s sound
snow melting & unblanketing the ground
flowers in bloom, butterflies soar
birds sing, the day waits, so open the door
bright flashes of flowers by the artist’s brush
grasses grow towards the sun, green & lush
sitting in the sun, watching baby animals play
rejoicing in the beauty of each spring day

summer is here, you dance with sunflowers
sitting on the hillside into evening hours
hear crickets, taste watermelon in the sun
& you laugh & play & dance & run
running on the beach & finding seashells
if they could tell stories, what would they tell?
the luminous moon & twinkling stars
& I know in my heart that this freedom is ours

four seasons four seasons
four different colors
bring out the best in us
show us the warmth of family
the gift of giving
the new birth of change
& the freedom of happiness
four seasons four seasons
& as they change
we change too
& with each change, discovering beauty
that we never knew

NEW: Feel the Hidden Flowers – Novel by Ashlee Craft

by Ashlee Craft

I guess I’m telling you this because I trust you. You make me feel safe, & you’ve always seen me when I felt invisible. I wanted you to know the story of how I got to be the way I am now. It started with my family; the verbal abuse & lack of love from them finally took its toll, the night I packed my belongings & drove off to anywhere but where I was, & moved in with a bohemian artist named Sara.

Another thing? We haven’t even gotten started yet. Him. He keeps swirling around in my head. The ghosts of his kisses on my lips. The ghosts of his arms around me. The ghosts of his hands caressing my skin. The ghosts of the way it felt when I had my hand on his chest & felt his heart beating, that time when he pressed his forehead into mine & closed his eyes, & we sat there breathing each other’s air, our chests pressed together, & he whispered to me that he loved me, & I pressed my lips against his & kissed him fervently, & for the first time in my life, I felt like everything was going to be okay someday. But it wasn’t. Not even close.

“You’re too sad.” He told me two months later. “I just can’t deal with it. I can’t handle it, because it hurts me too much. It hurts too much to see you like this, but I’ve tried everything, & it seems to me like you don’t even want to get better.”

Maybe I didn’t. I don’t know. It didn’t feel like it, all the days I lied in bed drinking & smoking & wishing it would all go away, days spent remembering him & the way he felt. Sometimes though, I would struggle like a bird, beating my wings against the bars uselessly trying to pull myself out of the pit.

Then someone new moved in across the street, his name was James, & strangely, he became the ladder I needed.
