A September Song

TO SHARE ON THIS 1st TUESDAY OF SEPTEMBER
@dVersePoets DURING #OpenLinkNight

September plays autumn notes
written by summer drought
except for prelude of Isaac air

trees already pause for winter
in a great song of
“Hi ~ ber ~ nation”

our early unrecoverable refrain
an extra long symphony
now yellow leaves falling plays

a September Song

“Oh, it’s a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn’t got time for the waiting game
Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days I’ll spend with you
These precious days I’ll spend with you” — lyrics written by Maxwell Anderson

It has since been recorded by numerous singers and instrumentalists. It was also used in the 1950 film September Affair, and for the credits in the television series May to December (a quote from the opening line of the song).

In the Pines

First writing #haiku

I hear wind in the pines
brought high to the top of the hill
wrestling whispers of you

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Second writing #tanka

the whisper of air refreshed
morning light’s fluttering kiss
sky winds greet me
a curl of mountain wood smoke
tumbles down upon my hearth

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Third writing #haiku

many a day goes by
only answers heard from sky winds
pull me closer to you
