A Stone: One daily observation
End of Summer
Time to say goodbye
To lazy hot days
Time to take inventory
To look across the horizon
To see where you are
To understand where you want to go
Is it a place, an accomplishment
Something you want to do
To pick a destination
To put a pin in the map
To dream a dream
To count the harvest
Of course we cannot plan for every
Unexpected happening along the way
But a good time
To prepare for winter
To check the stores
To chop the wood

Simple, straightforward, and full of the rhythm of nature and life. Esp like the ending–such order and finality brought to the tumult of summer, the scarcity and closing in of winter.
Oh…this brought back memories from childhood for me…headed to grandfathers with truck and saws to bring home the heat for the winter. Loved it!
Sad to think about saying good-bye to summer. Summer is my favorite season of the year. But yes, it is important to think of where one wants to go and to dream a dream, a dream that can be fulfilled in winter (I think) as if one only thinks about summers…there are many wasted winter days. Nice ‘stone,’ Annell.
A nice flow from the days of warmth to prepare for the cold. Your poem has that easy flow that makes me appreciate more as it is easily understood. Beautiful piece!
