Closing Up the summer

This, the first day of fall
signals the closing of summer: vacation house, bathing suits, convertibles, and playthings.
It opens up autumn: a tranquil beach, crispy days, dry sun, and the approaching rainbow of leaves.
A sad good-bye
A happy welcome.

Labor Day rest

Hang loose.
Take a rest.
Do nothing.
Stare at the sky.
Swing in the breeze.
Enjoy Labor Day.
You deserve it.
