#19 September Dreams




Thanks to everyone who took part in the last challenge. Now we are well into September there is a sense of autumn all around us, spring in the southern hemisphere. The next challenge is to capture the change of seasons in poetry whether that be summer to autumn or winter to spring.

Terry Clitheroe

I am September

The mood is mellow and I am September
So little time and still so many things to do
I cannot regret one thing that I remember.

Every morning I awake to challenges new
For it has made me what I am, content for now
There are things that changed my point of view!

Some not as yet, I will see what I can allow
Remember I'm September and time's everything
Winter will come soon and I'll take my final bow.

I do not fear sleep, for I shall wake in spring
But will that spring find me alone once again
Will I forget or remember everything.

In finding you, share our seasons once again?
The mood is mellow and I am September
I know our time together hasn't been in vain.

Patience

The midnight hour striking too soon
The night is young beneath the moon
For a kiss, dear, is it too late
Or will you sing with me love’s tune

Is it too soon to hold your hand
Gently pull you to where I stand
Each breath nervous like a first date
Is that moment yet to be planned

For all of time I feel you near
In my thoughts you always appear
For your kiss how long must I wait
I know I'll wait forever dear
