The Gate is Asway

Out of the blue and for no apparent reason other than momentary curiosity, I picked up an old book of poems sitting on a near-by bookshelf last week. While turning through the brittle, age worn pages, I came across this capsule sized poem entitled “October”. It seemed an appropriate feature for today’s post – can you believe it’s October already?!?

While my friends in four season locales are bundling up for crisp, cool weather, we here in Texas are enjoying a smaller portion of Autumn conditions with brisk mornings and chilly evenings. The mid-day continues to be pretty hot, but who’s complaining… it’s October and Fall will come yet! As the poem says, “the gate is set asway”… now, it’s only a matter of time.

For the time being, my memory of burnt red and gold leaves, growing layers of clothing, and late night bonfires will serve me. But you should know, I’m waiting anxiously!

  1. Yes, we are beginning to have crisp days, and the air conditioning is off for the most part. Great for taking the dogs for a walk. Love it.
