My Season

September 23, 2012

i breathe a sigh of relief

as the thought of a hot summer

will soon fade and be a distant memory

of a favorite season, not..

that causes irritation

and feels like a pesty fly

that will not go away..

but when it does

my heart swells with gratitude

for the reprieve in weather..

and I want to skip like a child

and flutter like an autumn leaf

that has taken flight..

ever so light and free

to embrace the coolness of the air..

    Lovely photo, and …. I cannot wait for autumn to begin. 95 degrees here today, and yet the poem make me feel the breeze.
