the 4 seasons, I look forward to the wafting in of autumn, but it is summer, with August about to begin...

It’s an hour before August
the aroma of autumn
rose straight up
from the earth moments ago

I welcomed the scent
inhaling the depth of the breeze

did I sense it earlier
as I changed from capris
to full-length blue jeans
from short-sleeves to
three-quarter length sweater

it is summer after all
and the sky is clear
stars shine bright
revealing Venus for the week 

it’s not the coolest night
at 73 degrees
inside where I live it’s 89.6

where did summer go
did it arrive
is it yet to come
we're in the thick of it by calendar

I’m not a fan of summer
I do not have a tan line
Irish freckles reflect
my mere moments in the sun

it’s an hour to August
but I felt Autumn tonight
shall I rush to farmer’s market
get veggies for soup on stovetop

can I still crunch fresh salads of summer
savoring the fruit of Niagara
ripened in the season's summer sun
to my delight

it’s an hour to August...
but I felt Autumn tonight

i feel I am getting into the autumn season. Cider is out and I love that. Apple cider that is. Pumpkins are out and Halloween is coming next month. Your descriptive write put words in my heart and made me go frm summer into fall too. Loved it ***********

AFter summer, autumn is my favorite is what comes after...winter...that I don't like. Beautiful writing, Sue.
Reviewed by Jon Willey 9/7/2008
a gifted write is this, Sue -- autumn is indeed a spectacular time -- unfortunately for me, it is indeed winter's portent -- and therein lies the problem for me -- winter's cold and bareness do not with me agree -- beautiful photo -- JMW

This poem touched my heart. There are some chilly nights in Connecticut even in mid August or late August the temperature drops. As I become anxious about the change of seasons, I ask myself the same things, "should I put out my sweater? do I need to prepare certain things for the autumn that is just around the corner." My favorite month is October, so I am anxious to put away my capris and short sleeved shirts. I am more of an autumn person, so I really love your poem and your writing style. It is a very enjoyable poem. Please stop into my den and let me know what you think of my work.

Talented writing. I'm looking forward to reading more of your work.
As for Autumn, not I. I love bright sunshine and flowering plants; even the water lilies you have with your bio will hibernate over the winter. I try my best to find something to like about cold weather, but always yearn for Spring to return.
