I’m Not Ready

August 30, 2008


Green is my favorite color and it’s threatening it’s departure.  I want to yell, “Stop it!  We haven’t even been to the beach yet!”  I’m not ready for naked trees and cold winds. 

I want the summer to linger, like when I was a child.  When every night held garden picked, salted cucumbers on the front steps and forced baths to wash off the stains of fresh cut grass on my bare feet.  Fireflies illuminated glass jars and the ice cream man’s song was something to behold.  When watching out for cars rounding the corner was my only responsibility and the sound of crickets lulled my play filled body to sleep.

Just a little longer…please?  I’m not ready yet.

    You probably don’t want to hear this – there was snow in our mountains yesterday. Yikes! I’ve also seen trees changing color. How can it be autumn already?!?

    Ah… as much as I am desperately willing the seasons to change you are wishing them to stay the same…. a blessing and a curse.

    As much as I love fall and have been awaiting it’s return, your thoughts almost made me change my mind.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly, however, Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the changing of the leaves, the dusky days, the cool evenings, and the pumpkins, the trick-or-treaters, and the pumpkin pie!!

    Sounds like you had wonderful summers as a child; what fond memories!

    I feel exactly the same way. Today I saw a mom at the mailbox who was so glad that public school finally started. I feel the opposite.
