Sultry Goodbyes

Late August and the hot air drifts over the lake the sky glowers striking a contrast black to gray soon, very soon, the lake with be thundered awake and the heat mirage with dissolve in disarray. The last of children's giggles will echo ghostly through the woods at water's edge mixed with sparrow song. Pink skinned lovers chilled will be but a memory and their cuddling brought indoors where it belongs The garden's done, each tomato plant has yielded scorched by the heat, fields and forest long for Autumn, praise the heat of summer for it raised the corn fields, raise a glass from the yield of the apple and the plum. Say goodbye to August with a gentle kiss on the breeze for the wild geese are flying, flying through the changing trees.

    Debbie This is a very nice tribute to summers end. The imagery and description that you created pulls me in and takes me on this journey. Thank you for the sweet comment on my Shakespeare poem.

    This is how I often feel the first time I see a yellow school bus arrive, after a lovely summer season. Melancholy and rather sad........sad and lovely all mixed with strange emotion. Nicely done!

    Debbie, A sure winner in the summer's end contest----you and I know- a little sad here in New England, you've portrayed it perfectly--was at Winnipesaukee last weekend and I can feel it, but fall is my favorite season.
