Mid Life Living

clematis fuzz


Summer’s hair is growing spare,

Her locks are going grey;

Her closet sports an orange theme

Since greener frocks are frayed.

Her temperature jumps back and forth

From warm to showing claws;

I wonder if her neighbours know

That she’s hit menopause?

    Does she cross her legs when she sneezes and does she sweat bullets in the middle of a snowstorm, too ???

    As I was reading this, the wind was blowing leaves across my roof with such vengence it sounded like a hail storm—-so much work ahead before what’s falling turns white. Some days it’s hard to remember the shade and gentle breezes that bring joy in other seasons…..
