The first tree
to lose all its leaves and stand exposed to the hustling of others’s leaves,
the rustle of warmth as it waves its branches in
wind strong enough to chill but
not to let those fingers touch and feel its own existence –
But it will perhaps hold first the golden chandelier when the spring comes.

Hello September, and hello school! Love the ability to write posts full screen, by the way – is it new or has it been around for ages? Yes, another summer gone with me not being able to blog as much as I’d liked. But time to write always comes with school, so now I really promise there will be posts coming your way throughout the fall.
Some people don’t like September because school is starting, but, for me, September’s arrival is a relief. This week we had one of our rare showers and I’m glad to say it did cool the city down a little. And now dragonflies are dancing outside my window, which means more rain is coming! I’d rather have school and breezy weather than have no school and have to play around in the sun. I don’t mean it’s bad – it’s just that I’m really sensitive to hot weather and sun rays and…you get what I mean.
(I’ll post a picture of the dragonflies when I get hold of an SD card adaptor.)
So, to everyone who’s starting school, good luck and have fun! To those in Australia etc. who haven’t had their summer holidays yet, keep working hard. 🙂 And to those who have worked through the summer, thank you. School may stop, but life must go on, and without all of you society would not be able to run properly. (Grammar fail.) Yours, a student.
