Here Now

Sunrise brought a pink glow to the long streaks of cloud the sky wore, but then the morning turned gray for several hours. I reveled in the chill the overcast preserved, so appropriate to early autumn. Then summer invited itself to lunch. I ate the last of the watermelon.

When I went to the store I bought apples and pears so the fruit bowl would be dressed properly for the season. Yes, I'm trying to tempt fall, coax it into being more assertive. Come on, autumn, kick summer's sorry rear end! You can do it! Bring me some more clouds, and next week maybe I'll buy a pomegranate.

This evening there are no clouds, and the cicadas are buzzing, bu tin a few hours it will be cold enough to silence them. Maybe the clouds will come back then and there will be another gray morning. Every little bit helps.
