It’s back to school time
Fresh from a summer of fun and laughter
Suppressed excitement – meeting the friends
Exchanging and embracing new challenges
While autumn leaves turn golden red and fall
On summer nourished grass and dance
Wind gently making ballet of the shapes
You breathe in and absorb the essence of all this
Half sad that summer’s gone and winter beckons

    Autumn is surely around the corner Liz. I do dread the winter to come later. Agape, Moses

    Fall is a time of transition, Liz. Yes, summer is behind us and winter looms ahead, but I like the way you describe the joy of autumn -- seing old friends when going back go school and feeling grateful for the colorful foliage. Very nicely done! Love, Carolyn
