On the road. While I am away, something from my photo stash . . .
SCHOOL WINDOWS are open,
rooms being aired out.
Can the start of school be far behind?
All these many years later
I still have the same feelings
at this time of year,
not quite ready to let go of summer
an eagerness to begin again,
to take on the new challenges,
to run the risk of it begin difficult,
to find out whether I can do it.
I can only stand just so much unstructured time.
