departing summer

Carpe Diem #766 departing summer



Yes, it is not the end of summer.  There are still the 100+ days of July and August to face.  Lots of sweat to be glistening on foreheads.  Parched lawns .. moms anticipating school's start .. kids wanting one more day of freedom .. fields of cotton yet to turn white.

When one is no longer in the summer of life, seasonal changes feel a little like seasons of life.  Departing summer is more a time that brings to mind fine wine in the final stages of aging.  Next will be lying in a cellar gathering dust.  Or coming uncorked at the next wedding!  Whoot! Whoot!

the last flower wilts

Inspirational haiku from CDHK:

summer passing
the path to the beach
where no one goes

abandoned beach
finally I can find peace
summer has gone
