September

This is a poem from September 2012.

September begins
with apple trees
overflowing to the ground
and the music of wind

on a short errand
goldenrod in bloom
near Bossler’s
Christmas Tree Farm

oh I am in no hurry
one day at a time
works best for me now

still the image stays in my mind . . .

we hold the door
for older people
memories of Mom

autumn in the air
young people
open doors for me
