September

Written for:  Poetic Asides November 2016 Chapbook Challenge – Day 12
Pick a month (any month) and make it the title of your poem, and then
write your poem.

Has a bittersweet sound.
Air begins to cool down at night.
Vestiges of warmth light
an afternoon delight with gold,
though days will soon turn cold.
Catalogs feature bold new clothes.
On each page, models pose
in styles designers chose for you.
Children return to school.
September songs bring jewels to ears.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
