September Personified

Originally Appeared in the Sun by the Sea…

(online version


September sinks into summer’s dwindling dog days. Heads back to school. Trades beach bags for book bags. Gets an A+ in all things coastal! Welcomes the Irish in everyone at the Fall Festival. Arrives early for each fabulous fall event. Attends a fishing tournament. Appreciates fading daylight. Builds memories bigger than sandcastles. Brings breezy autumn along for the ride…

September is surrounded by a bittersweet blend of orange, yellow, and gold. Wakes to the sound of lingering birds. Takes a last chance for a barefoot beach walk. Feels the hot sun mixing with the cool sand. Smells the morning glory. Feeds the squirrels. Jumps into a pile of color-changing leaves. Trades tank tops for tee shirts, sandals for sneakers. Plants a tree. Celebrates Indian Summer. Dances in a garden. Drives with the windows down. Smells the salt air. Makes tomato soup. Eats carrot cake. Stocks up on apples. Drinks apple cider. Watches a football game. Thinks positive. Participates in a treasure hunt. Chops wood. Cleans out the fireplace. Captures life’s sweetest moments. Touches the soft mist. Sleeps beneath the stars. Lives by heart. Knows what it means to be home…
