Hey Jacob, wow, I like your poems!
Please feel free to post as much as you like
You know there is one my favorite book from Japan, it has been written in tenth century, it is poetry in prose and beginning of that book is something the most beautiful written for me.
It has just couple of sentences describing the most beautiful parts of the day in each of four seasons.
This your post reminds me of that book although you described some of the most painful moments and memories in every season
You touched me the most with your Winter, I'm finding terrible difficult seeing children left alone without love and proper care. Those are some of the most painful scenes for me.
I hope your brother is alright?
