Too Soon To Say Goodbye


like summer
we linger
by the fencepost

Not Done Yet


sweet September
unwilling to let
summer’s party fade away

Last Dance


summer’s
last light danced
across the lawn

Lighted By A Flowering Torch


summer dims
yet light shines on
in the garden

Considerations

scurry and hurry of gathering
or
savor the warmth of the sun

Aperitif

last of the phlox
the final sips
of summer sustenance

cattails and Queen Anne
keep watch over
summer’s fading days

Our Two Chairs


Let us take our willow seats
and savor a few more garden moments with the geraniums
before the the frost comes and sends us all inside.
