    August ends
    everything gone
    to seed

    —SUE BURKE

    Gosh, some months everything can go wrong, go to seed, and some months feel magical regardless of troubles and issues.

    lazy afternoon-
    I drift along with the breeze
    and dandelion seeds

    Sue, I love this one. I'm just back from vacation, back to work and for me summer seems over. Yet in your poem, you show that the end of one thing contains the beginning of the next, with more flowers, sun, life to come.

    From the sadness of summer's end to hope for new beginnings. Lovely.
