Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain!

So Long Summer

Anticipating the cool nights of Fall
When chilly nights wrap around our bodies
And force us to use blankets
And open windows.

Seeing summer slip away once again,
Tucking in the early morning sun
Until a later hour.
But the windows are open!

Allowing the new season
To wash over us
Clearing the cobwebs of heat,
So long Summer,
Thank you Fall.

Odat has summer
With Fall around the corner -
Hang in there Odat. (Haiku)

Fall is my favorite time, I love it when the leaves start changing and the air is brisk.

I'm with the Sarge, I love Fall. It seems to be getting shorter and shorter than when I was a kid. Still, you made me revel in it once again. Thank you.

Summer's nearly over,
There soon will be no more clover.
But fall's on the way
And all I can say
Is hooray!
