August seems such a strange month.
The weather shifting in and out of season.
And those glorious golden days,
The hot sun still parching my garden.
Flowers fading, fruit ripens
And my thoughts turn a bit melancholy.
As the raucous noise of summer fades,
And friends depart for their long journeys home.

When August rolls around in the garden, it is a bittersweet time as we watch the garden bloom and fade. And while I love August and all the bounty it brings, I am saddened as I know it will be gone too fast, and I will be longing for its return.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog. Visit them to read some more wonderful verse.

Special Note: The pictures here are of one of the last bird ‘friends’ to leave our garden at the end of summer…the ruby-throated hummingbird. These are pictures of one of the sweet females, who worked hard raising a brood in spring and summer, getting ready to fly South soon.
I leave you with a few additional words about August Muse. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
