Seasons Change

By Heather Obmann


While the leaves blow colorful

red, green, orange, and yellow,

I walk with the crunching below.

The cold air fills my lungs,

while hot chocolate keeps my heart warm.

Flashback to those days,

innocent minds filled with no jealousy, anger, or regret.

Just as the leaves, our colors change.

We began to separate ourselves from

the branches that united us together.

But oh, the colors are so lovely.


The snow begins to fall outside.

Inside there is light, my home.

My own personal sun, smiling so bright, handsome, warm, kind.

Laughing with the background of the barking of our two hounds.

SEEDS is envisioned as a diverse network that provides a space for members of the Northeastern Illinois University community and beyond to showcase their artistic talents from poetry to prose and visual arts. Visual Arts submissions will not be accepted for the SEEDS Corner, because the integrity of the piece can be compromised during the newspaper printing process. Submissions for the #SEEDScorner or the SEEDS Journal can be sent to [email protected] with one submission per an email thread for the fall 2014 edition. We are always accepting submissions for the SEEDS corner and the journal. You can email us for submission guidelines or visit our Facebook.
