Summer Farewell

6 a.m. and the sky is dark

body and mind awake

ready to start

aware that soon

school will begin

life marches on

like birds flying in the wind

there’s a somberness and quietness

as the end of summer begins

and moments of remembrance for the long days of that have been

gratitude for the spinach and sustenance the garden supplied from spring

the flickers of fireflies in the summer night

beach trip with family and friends

as darkness grows – farewell to summer begins.
