Hello September


Hello September
with your mellowing light,
apples turning ripe on the hills,
warm sunshine and turquoise skies
coaxing the last bit of summer
from the vines.

I’m soaking it in
…tucking away memories
along the backroads of my mind
for the raw, gray wintry days
to come.

I can almost feel the planet
picking up speed
…the year dipping toward the horizon
like a brilliant sunset.

    Beautifully said, a poetic salute to the remains of a year. Great photos as well, they vibrate with life

    I can see summer coming to an end in my garden too! These photos of sunflowers are beautiful. Especially the one with the butterfly. I'd like to be that butterfly! Are these photos from your garden?

    God has sure blessed you with the perfect job – Professional Gardner- that fits your passions so well. I'm sure you get all kinds of writing ideas from being out in beautiful nature and helping it to grow.

    I want on the list to buy your book when it is all finished. You bless my heart so!

    I heard the first acorn hit our tin roof a few days ago. I love that sound, it means fall is on it's way. Oh how I love the smell of apples, apple cider, the smell of the smoke from fireplaces burning. Fall is my favorite time of year. As the bears go into hibernation I seem to come alive. Summer heat just zaps me.

    as half the world welcomes
    cooler days and golden leaves
    we in the southern hemisphere
    are putting on our dancing shoes
    and welcoming new growth that is spring

    I love your words and photo
