Blue Curtains - Poem by Kelly Kurt

The mid-August heat wave has abated
A cold front overnight brought much needed rain
Today is twenty-five degrees cooler, with a driving wind
Blue curtains, flailing in my window
Joyfully welcome the precocious taste of autumn

    i had to check out the use of precocious, a word i 'never use', but i think i used it in a poem just this week in one of my paper notebooks! DAMN! I did, just two days ago! ! [but i see that i misspelled it! not surprising to me.] ANOTHER word coincidence i call that! !

    it's a good fit in speaking of the taste of autumn. do you want a comma after window?

    i like the poem and the cooldown promise; it rained here in dry northern california recently also. thank goodness, but we need more! ! !

    Thanks for the review, Bri.
    I think I basically omitted the comma in favor of starting a new, capitalized line
    We had a nice stretch of cooler, drier weather her. The next 7 days will be in the 90s and humid. Last gasp?

    We wait so long for Summer,
    And when it comes, sizzling Hot!
    We rather if had Not.
    I am amazed how well you can handle even, the effects of the weather, hot, cooler are felt as if presently together.. (Report) Reply

    The first long sub-zero streak will have me longing for warmth. (But not mugginess)

    This is a wonderful slice of reality capturing that elusive moment when not the calendar but our senses, our inner awareness mark the change of seasons. I've always felt the outside world's seasons are paralleled by Inner Seasons and your poem makes that synchronizing of Self and World effortlessly real. And now we can attune our
    senses and mind to the virtues of Autumn. In this way, WE become masters of TIME, and not time of us. Ilove the closing image of Blue Curtains! ! (Report) Reply

    My blue curtains are flying again today. I like your thought of seasons being internalized. (I have long marked the beginning of the end of summer with the first pre-season football game of the Bears.) : -)
