A BBC documentary I really enjoyed was 'Orbit'. In it you could really see how our seasons are created by the earth's tilt accompanied by its journey around the sun. When I was little I didn't feel connected to the seasons, I didn't seem to notice the leaves changing colour or the daffodils coming out, I just noticed if it was a bit too cold or a bit too warm. I noticed them more when my partner moved to the Kent coast. Now the hardest part of winter is how dark the days get and I really look forward to the arrival of Spring. These poems represent my changing attitudes to the seasons over the years.
