End of Summer

A Stone: One daily observation.

End of summer, a time of longing.


We write Poems:  prompt a moving poem.

End of Summer

In the morning

The feel of autumn

Summer fades

Promises to return

The early light

Caresses the mountains

Skin as tough as a turtle shell

Birds in gentle flight

End of summer a welcome relief

Goodbye to hot lazy afternoons

Breathless evenings

Time of waiting

Time of longing

Cool autumn air beckons

Afternoon needs a sweater

Evening demands a fire
