Day 353, summer ends

Summer, you afford me time
Unstructured. I love that but you
Breathe down my neck, your hot
Breath makes me sweat. You are incessant
Like a Greek grandmother.
Your comforting and suffocating

Autumn on the other hand
Is like a beloved house guest.
Shes gentle, gradual
Refreshing. Her husky voice
Is soft like leaves falling
She is kind, merciful
And only leaves when the cold
Wet winter becomes too much for her

I turned down the bed
I set out flowers, I've got all of autumns
Favorite foods bought

Summer I'm not rushing you
I'm just ready to miss you.
