Songs From September

Ecclesiastes 3:1
There is an appointed time for everything.
And there is a time for every event under heaven


My garden dreams lie
under a blanket
of burnt pine needles
and saffron leaves.
Rain without thunder
the chilled gazebo
and poison-green grass.
Grapevines twine
hemlock trees.
We hunt for pungent fruit
in forest foliage.
A summer reprise of
deep velvet nights
tourmaline days
drive us
to trim bushes
and fill
the wood box.
September has come
too soon,
before summer’s romance
like my rose garden.
