Sounds of school children readying for the new year
Evening’s light diminishes a little more each day
People put away lawn furniture and bring out their rakes
Television starts its new season of shows
Empty swimming pools are closed until next summer
Morning has a brisk scent in the air
Buses of yellow add to the early traffic
Everyone grabs a jacket or sweater when they head out the door
Remember summer and let it keep you warm until it comes again

    Our summer was so short. Hoping September makes up for it. Nice writing Shani. Good luck. Thank you for your comments on my car poem. Love, Joyce

    Nice job! Liked the 'buses of yellow' -- don't think I read anyone else writing about the 'back to school' part of the fall equation. Congrats! Cyndi

    Shani, come visit me in Florida and you can swim until the end of November (at least). Enjoyed the many different events you described that are unique to September -- schools opening, new TV seasons and, for some people, jackets and sweaters. Great write! Congratulations on your win in Carol's contest! Love, Carolyn
