Years of Septembers starting out with
and new learning horizons
embedded in my mind
that August is the month that teeters on the precipice of new beginnings.
My heart often yearns for
the beginning of a new school year--
to feel the excitement of anticipating the frontiers that held
and learning new skills.
It seems fitting that the yellow rose should be the symbol of the promise of new beginnings.
colors that radiate the warmth of an August sun
shining on beachgoers as they enjoy the last few weeks of
a summer no one wants to end.
August finds my heart torn between two worlds...
that of the endless-summer-seeking beachgoer
and that of the anticipatory student.
holding on to every sun-filled moment to savor it and hope it never ends
looking to the horizon wondering what adventures lie beyond.
