Saying Goodbye To Summer

p1170050

There are so many ways

we say goodbye

to summer

A woman’s voice

singing by the canal

The sharp

contrasting light

between  buildings downtown

The

thinning

tourist

throngs

The empty swimming pools

Early morning

jackets and sweaters

in backpacks

for the afternoon

A cool tinge

on your arm hair

against

your warm skin

Things you did not notice before

like

a certain tree

a broken bench

vague memories

something

on a sidewalk

and more

everywhere

Something perfect

but

it leaves

as it appears

and you

are not alone

for a moment

with all this

saying

goodbye

to

summer
