My theme for September is Transitions. I experienced that the other day when I saw a Crepe Myrtle, still in bloom, but not full bloom right next to a tree beginning to change into its â€œautumn costume.â€ I wrote this rhyme to mark this transition from summer to fall, which is tomorrow, September 22nd, The Fall Equinox. Enjoy! â™¥
Easing into the Equinox
As the crepe myrtle goes to sleep
and the leaves of summer start turning deep
reds and golds and rust
Penning these words is a must.
As the summer sunâ€™s rays begin to wane in Fall
Mother Nature never ceases to enthrall.
Just a reminder that evâ€™ry season has its beauty.
So enjoy autumnâ€™s gift, itâ€™s your â€œcivic duty.â€
