September For Beginners

Red, orange, yellow and brown

blur together in the skies and the ground.


What good news does September bring?


A new life,

a chance of reconciling

with my past, my future,

beneath the full moon of Harvest,

with fresh crops for sale in every market.


I sit in front of the fireplace,

hot chocolate in hand.

Reminiscing on the days,

I sunk my feet into sand.


A new colour appears

with each new year.


My son is born,

oh look,

a new fear!


White and blue,

a world painted just for you.


Come, my baby, quick haste,

let's enjoy a hot chocolate,

in front of the fireplace.
