In the middle of winter, I dream of summer days...

Alas! it’s September; it’s summer’s end
 
Sad farewell to hot days and sultry nights
 
Goodbye to flowered shorts and linen whites
 
Gone the sunny beaches; my new-found friend!
 
Autumn’s here, sadly! there’s fences to mend
 
In my strange world, in between stolen bites
 
Gordian knots dragging us down from the heights
 
Fast, down the slope precariously descend!
 
At summer’s end, our fantasies conclude
 
Life’s realities,  humdrum existence
 
Awaits all of us; our problems intrude
 
Summer joys; faint mirage in the distance!
 
As the cold autumn breeze brings solitude
 
Preparing us for a long winter trance!

omg...i love this..for one ...i cant resist a seasonal poem...i love seasons...especially fall..but every sentence here is relevant...honestly i didnt think the first poem i read i would favorite ..it normally takes reading a few to find one i like..but with you i normally instantly like what i read...but no not just saying that...i love this poem...so far ive never read a better seasonal poem on this site...i love that time of yr...fall is the best..i love how you conveyed right after summer and rounded all the way to that last line about winter...brilliant phrasing too...sounds like something from long ago...and thats surely no insult! lol. i love that you begin sentences with alas...and fast...that makes a poem so much stronger..and it tugs at you faster...and i like you didnt just make it about ho hum seasons..or the obvious..you made it personal with the use of the mending of fences and such..favorite part ...hmmm..idk i had a few..i think my fav is probably the end about the winter trance...or this..i love the stolen bites part...good imagery ..the gordian knot obviously relays big pictures and feelings in the mind...precariously descend...and then of course you go from real seasons...to alluding to lifes true emotional seasons at the same time...best part in my opinion >

really vic i have no bad things to say about this poem...strong from start to finish and all the needs of a poem you have put in it...and with the TONS of season poems...that never drag me in...this kept you reading...so good job ...thats my two cents...hah

SORRY for any typos i already had to delete my comment and put it back to fix it

Thank you so much. I'm glad you like this poem. I have disappeared from this site for almost a year. And I haven't posted anything since last May. I have retired January last year and have been on the road a lot. I wrote this poem last September and only posted it a few weeks back. I don't know if I have writer's block but I'm hoping whatever it is, I can begin writing again.

I'm also glad that you have posted a few poems after being away for a long time yourself. I love reading your poems, just like Robert. There depth and substance in what you write and I like that. Hope to see you more often in these pages.

Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow but he wears a thick fur and we don’t! We dug in and he has the time of his life with snow and cold all over. I am surprise he’s still out there alive! :—))

Long way to beach times yet but I am ready as you are and salivating for hot fudge sundae on the boardwalk.

Like. Thanks Brod.

There's another polar vortex coming next week. Brrrr! My blessing is that I live in Houston and therefore spared the bone-chilling negative temperatures.

Thanks for liking Brod.
