The Last Morning of Summer

On the last morning of summer this year,

playing peek-a-boo with the humans below,

teasing and frolicking among the clouds,

the seasons journey serenely on.

I think Autumn’s making its entrance.

At least the calendar would have me believe that.

Climate is changing and timing’s not certain,

So I’ll just show up to play in the present.

  1. I still have a hard time looking at these types of clouds on a blue sky. Although they’re beautiful, I’m reminded of those awful clouds and the music played on one of those memorial websites for my mother. I would sit and stare at those moving clouds and listen to the elegiac music and cry. Someday I will forget, or at least be able to look at them without bias.

    That said, I’m feeling very fallish right now. We’ve had a sprinkling of rain, and I hope more is on the way. We need it terribly on the Left Coast.

    1. I’m so sorry the picture evokes sad memories for you Jilanne.

      It’s feeling fallish here as well and while we, too, have had a rather dry summer it hasn’t been as extreme as what you’ve been experiencing on your side of the country.

      Here’s to expanding Consciousness, to live in harmony with our planet, with one another, and with our Selves. xoxoM

    1. In my youth, I was definitely a summer’s child, not necessarily a sun worshiper. As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to appreciate the beauty in each season, and to be grateful that we still have seasons. I’m looking forward to watching how autumn expresses in NYC this year! ๐Ÿ˜‰ xoxoM

  2. We actually had a fairly mild summer this year, for which I’m grateful. But I always love the fall colors and the cool crispness in the air. Maybe this will be a good year for the trees’ displays!
