Summer Lifts Her Head

on change

Summer lifts her head

revealing flushed cheeks and bruised lips.

She’s slowly falling apart to be replaced

by a much colder, duller version of herself–

her vibrant greens being replaced

by reds and oranges, the dying evidence of her fiery, passionate sparks,

but mostly by browns, evidence of the light and life

fading from her eyes.

Time says that it is long past time

to tell her goodbye,

rest well,

see you next year.
