Writers' Pantry #36: Change of Season (posted by Rosemary)
"Hello wordsmiths, this is Rosemary. And we're in September
already – so soon! Here, it's the beginning of Spring.
For most of you it's the start of Autumn – or Fall,
if you live in the USA. (We can't call Autumn 'Fall' in Australia. Most of our native trees are evergreen and don't shed
their leaves.) So we're right at the point of change."
"It's that for me personally, too. I get to join in the prompting
now, for the first time – whether devising some of the specific topics for our Weekly Scribblings, or hosting the
Writers' Pantry where you yourselves decide the actual subject matter."
Summer seemed the shortest of seasons
people losing businesses, many
unemployed. Awful illness spreading, pleas
for treatment, a cure–there isn't any.
We look forward to Autumn, still masked,
hoping for knowledge of what to expect.
Scientists are faced with this grueling task
pressured by need, and political stiff-necks.
Leaves will change color as they always do
each year. Pumpkins will be plentiful
to pick, and apples in scented view.
Following season, our thoughts turn to wool.
Surely by Winter, we'll have an answer
and our lives will begin a new chapter.
