September

summer slips its heated veil in September a noiseless stride smoothing out the numbing pace of leisure we pull back to the looming pitch of harvest revering all its bounty twilight summer as students on campus embrace renewal breezily swept up in a spirit of new ideas that burn through old ones filters of wanderlust, discovery, concentration that frame a path for growth reclaiming the active tone of younger voices inevitable meandering to fall wanning hours of summer sun that bring light's gaze upon you a folding inward in shadowy cooler nights that knit round you like a healing sweater to forget the green that's lost beyond our borders in the churn and flash of breaking autumn colors Composed: September 17/21 For Brian Strand A Strand Contest (1050)

Thank you, Paulette, for your affirmative note. Seasonal scenes (fortunately) provide a wealth of images to anchor one's lines. With appreciation, Brian

Autumn is a beautiful time of the year, and so are the other seasons. Falling leaves and the start of the school season. Nice write and enjoyable to read. Take care.
