Fading from life

it’s always august’s end
september’s beginning
that bothers me the most

i feel that brush of cool air
press against me
like a kiss on dead lips

the trees are now painted 
a sunset’s reflection
but all i see is red
in summer’s end

the leaves dance gracefully
beneath the winds
one last time
before they fall

the trees will soon stand 
blank of life
like you and you and you
and my mind
as i remember
each ending
as i watched them 
fall from life
amongst summer’s end

    Yes,Sandra summer always ends as you say so eloquently in this poem. I hope you win the contest. Autumn has its charms as well so take heart! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    A wonderful painting of life, hints of loss and the seasons.

    Incredible roller coaster of emotion here. This battle between holding on & letting go. Fantastic job.

    The fall does bring a chill to my memories... summer is a lovely feeling until it gets to 120 degrees in the southwest.. This is a very lovely and heartfelt write :)

    Interesting work! Thankfully seasons we do not care as much for do not last forever.:) But like emotions, they return. It was nice reading your poem today. Awesome one. Keep up the beautiful work. Always, Laura

    I guess I might feel this way if I did not live in the tropics. Just the thought of cool weather gives me happy chills. I know for some, summer ends all too soon and fall passes into winter much too soon. Your poem conveys this melancholy wonderfully Sandra!

    I was born in October...one would think I would look forward to it, perhaps if I lived where it was warmer I may...fall always seems to bring the cold with it and that first touch reminds me of all those I lost in summer's end...
