seasons change

Labor Day – the unofficial end of summer.  Meteorological autumn comes in a few weeks, but it is now time to put away those white pants and look forward to cooler weather.

The signs are everywhere:

  • yellowing leaves in the trees,
  • tall grasses bloomed out and fading in color,
  • maroon colored pods on the sumac,
  • crops ripening,
  • green nuts turning brown,
  • gold and purple wildflowers along the road,
  • slanted sun rays,
  • just “something in the air.”

The air is NOT cooler just yet – it’s very hot and muggy due to tropical storm Gordon traveling north.  But it will come!

Once upon a time I encouraged my students to memorize a short poem each week and this was one of them – one of my favorites:


A road like brown ribbon
A sky that is blue
A forest of green
With that sky peeping through.
Asters, deep purple,
A grasshopper’s call,
Today it is summer,
Tomorrow is fall.

by Edwina Fallis


To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.  Ecclesiastes 3:1
