September is back to school,
and not a moment too soon.
September is cool nights,
but the annual Indian summer will still surprise us when it comes.
September is falling leaves,
and the inevitability of raking the neighbor’s leaves (since our pine trees don’t need raking)
September is bright skies,
and family dinners, afterschool snacks, and homework.
September is just like spring,
but in its beginning, it is also ending.
