a spider spins and climbs

Mr. Goldfinch nibbles at the feeder

while a blue jay waits,  surprisingly quiet in the oak tree

there’s fresh sugar water for the hummer

and Chip climbs out on the woodpile

he will join me on the deck, as he does most mornings, with his cheeks full of seeds

but then I catch a glance of my dining room while grabbing a cup of coffee

“college packing central”

and it’s back to reality

no turning back

the summer pinks are fading fast
slowly replaced by the warm golds, oranges, reds and purples

the change is inevitable
and I’m at peace with that
in a few days, it will be Labor Day weekend
it’s been a great summer but it’s time to move on
and I’m looking forward to an equally great autumn
here in New England
