Season Of September



Sunlight falls in breezy dapples across your lichened stone, solace now I seek in chapel’s old yard while we’re alone. It brings my heart back, being here - love; that I remember, the autumn brings a tender tear season of September. Neath supple sways my prayerful praise I offer you a hymn; may dreams evergreen be always blessed to soulful brim. ...church bells black - they toll the hours mourning time since you’ve been gone. Losing you and laughter ours wrong side of Heaven I am on... Green leaves that sigh like grieving silk have not yet turned to red, memories sweet as mother’s milk will nurse through snows ahead. It brings my heart back, being here - love; that I remember, the autumn brings a tender tear season of September. Susan Ashley September 7, 2018

Hi Susan, September's song sung straight from your heart. Such a tender write that brings a tear to the eye. Your words sing so gently and paint such a sadly beautiful canvas in the mind. Love ever goes on and your words sing its eternal song. This is such wonderful poetry Susan, an honour and a pleasure to read. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs....Mike. XX. Another fave.

Your memories cling to the mind like lichen clings to stone, Susan. This is a beautiful poem inspired by the imminent arrival of autumn...not sad, verging more on acceptance and the knowledge that one day you'll both be on the same side of heaven. ~ Warm regards & hugs, my friend. // paul

Oh Susan the voice of your bereft love is as 'tender' as gracious as your ache. You are but on the right "side of Heaven" humming such a melodious lyric that awakens both the heart and the mind to a depth of fine feelings seeking "solace" in the embrace of a comforting Nature. Sweet brimful feelings overwhelmed my soul reading your memories of September as I am a September woman! Unique, beautiful and worth reading over and over! A great melody from the depth of your heart. A FAV. Love and hugs.
