And I wore
dandelion confetti
as ears
soft caress
to a marbled face
tenderly
framing
sculpted melancholy.

And this is one reason why I can not wait for fall to come in on soft bottomed shoes and breathe me crisp once again. August causes a melt, a kind of lethargy of spirit. Heat is too much. But under structure of September, I rise.

Are you sad just now, William?

Thank you, Annie. I love when you respond in this way.

Some days, Erin, many, in fact, encompass all the seasons; I can feel them blow through me.

Sad and happy both.

Thank you for asking.

I'm glad there is the happy, too. I experience this but I'm not sure I would have known how to express it.

Really, Erin? Is there a way to prevent its expression?
