the end of my summer

have been out in the yard tonight......the air is sweet and warm like a soft early april evening. the bright moon is shining through the naked etchings of the oaks and maples.....webs of branches reaching into the night. how does one say good bye to something so peaceful and beloved....so calming, still and magical? how fortunate i have been to have this magic continue far into the month of november. and tomorrow as i turn the page of the calendar i know it will all come to one final and lasting ending. as a huge mid west storm heads in this direction i savor the moments that linger upon this last night of moonlit wonder....the final tapestry of memories blended into the foggy, moist air. i love how it smells and feels on my skin. dark moist earth mixed with pine and forgotten leaves... that now lay soft upon the still green grass......stirring sleepily in a random breeze. not a sound on this night. a total reverse of a typical day filled with laughter, conversation and the music that fills my life. strange to listen for silence and really hear it.
