Exposed

Here I am heart in hand
Sharp pain streaked memories rush in
An imminent squall warning
The red flags waving on a stormy beach
All the fear rises like a tide
Enveloping
My heart in a surge of protection
Shielding and yet yielding
A mist so airy
You could reach right through it
Dispersing
If only you were here

Enter September

Slipping in quietly
On August’s coattails

Clad in last season’s warmth
And bright colour

Flourishing her own touch
A pearlescent wrap

The weft of crisper air
The warp of stored sunshine

Earth twirls like a girl
Showing us her new raiment

A whisper of white embellishment
Introducing our eyes to the latest fashion
In the Collection of Four Seasons
