Not too long ago, it seems,
it was the second day of second grade.
Yesterday was the first day of her senior year.
The air is getting a bit chilly at night. Autumn
will arrive before we know it. When winter leaves,
we'll prepare for graduation in the spring.
Why does it go so quick? Perhaps it is some
parlor trick or else it's caused by the waving
of a magician's wand.

but what about next year?
when labor day is finished and the schools are back in swing
and the baby graduates are missing
and only fall comes back
off to other schedules
off to other jobs
off to other offs

New English summers are pretty enough,
yet winters are prettier times--
but buyer beware: the ticks here are rare,
so bring enough gin for your Lyme's.

winter clock approaches
early sunsets
thoughts of whitman
curled up by the cast iron stove
brewing cider
singing with the cat

front door release
into frozen blue day
dressed so thick, impervious to attack
courage enough to confront a blizzard
can do it becomes the mantra

memories of such times
and i hang on to summer
stay awhile, let's watch venus smile

l'shanah tovah creaks the pantry door
from summer fields in other promised lands
to pilgrim sanctuaries' autumn store,
where, penitent, the lifeblood stockpile stands
in hope to taste a year of life once more--
shofar, so good, when life to life remands.

There is a secret waiting to be hidden
under the leaves that are yet to fall
The road to happiness: Perseverance, Endurance and a whole lot of Hope.

stones and stars and blues and blacks
fall is all when summer slacks

stars and stones and blacks and blues
summer milks when autumn moos

blacks and blues and stars and stones
summer thunders, autumns moans

blues and blacks and stones and stars
all's a ball, the season's ours

i feel my muse come back
rolling off my tongue
like the stone from the
tomb, like the birth of a
newborn, womb released,
words flood out with the
afterbirth, my mouth
determined to tell the
story whole
and the prodigal son
returns.
his name is joel.

:mrgreen:

(great to have you back, joel! I have missed your writing! pray for me, ok? i need a spokeman. ;))

Seasons come and go in the temperate clime,
Once again the ivy will climb, the grass will yellow,
Once again we will return our tawny heads to heaven,
Seeing the meteor showers and the signs of the times...
For time bends into itself and we all become one
With the essence of being...
Like for the first time seeing...
The "Green Man" will return after the frost,
We are seeing what we are gaining, not what we have lost...

Listen to this old tune, "Whitebird" with me: 8)

[note to Steve:
I edited your post to embed the video. See the numbers and letters after the equal sign? You just copy those numbers and letters... that's the youtube video ID... then you paste just those numbers and letters after the = in the posting window and select them with your curser. When they are selected hit the youtube tab at the top left of the posting window and voila! The software makes the tags to embed the video. Hit EDIT on this post to see what I mean. - Doreen]

joel on my desktop
228
little blue cross
with the word Joel228

No Idea what 228 says anymore
Just a reminder of a poet named Joel
I think he wrote a book
a long time ago

We all heard the story of
the devil went down to Georgia
and old Charlie fiddled him back to hell

And the Devil went up New England
And Daniel put a cell on him

But Joel the devil behind him
Poemed him to death

what the heck is doggerel any way
My homage to Joel

fall is knocking at my door
but I do not answer
the pages on my calendar lie to me
is it really autumn
Seems more like spring inside

what is it like to be September's child
will she remember
