There Is No Question – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Photo: – Apple tree split in two seasons: summer and winter

“In the depth of winter I finally learned, that within me there lay an invincible summer.” Albert Camus

There Is No Question

Can one ask such a question,
whether it is possible for 
winter and summer to be 
conjoined as fleshly twins,
surely there is no question,
the answer is obvious,
my winters are gladdened by
the presence of summer and
my summers are tempered by
winter's cool curl of memory's 
turn towards feeling.

  2. Daylight in your part of the world is night somewhere else. Winter in your terrain is summer somewhere else. So, it does happen.

  5. true. The two compliment and complement each other. May it always be so. xo


  6. So appropriate at this time of year, Paul, where we hear sleighbells tinkling in the wintry north, whilst sitting in scorching summer heat here in the south!


  7. Can’t have one without the other. It’s all about balance. Nice write, Paul!
