September Rising

no modifiers
no metaphors
keep the sun and moon
save the scent of peaches
ripened on the tree
the hum of happy bees
keep the quiet
and the expanse of sky
no   need to venture
anything
no need to weep
at season’s end
just breathe
September
rising

    A lovely tribute to the change of month, Sarah.

    Unfortunately, your title pressed the “parody” button in my brain, and the following came rolling out:

    September Rising
    (Based on Bad Moon Rising by Credence Clearwater Revival)

    I’m seeing September rising.
    I’m seeing Autumn on the way.
    Green leaves will be color turning.
    Take time to look at them today.

    The month will change tonight,
    and in the morning light
    September dawning bright.
