September's Overture


September's Overture

Late August finds me
reclining porch-side,
for there's no other way
to sit in an Adirondack chair -
savoring chardonnay,
appreciating a symphony
of crickets (bliss high -n- low)
and katydids (rather raspier)
frogs, the occasional dog
paying homage
to the renaissance around the corner.

I remember making some Adirondack chairs when I was young. I think I like making them more than sitting in them. Now I prefer a straighter back when sitting.

I am with you in that wonderful moment of bliss. The sound of crickets always brings me joy--frogs too.

I love those moments... especially love a chair where there is only one (comfortable) way to sit.

I love all the sounds as well, especially the description of the symphony. The crickets are my own favorite this time of year. And a great title as well - wonderful piece!
