The Last Hurrah

IMG_5671

Today’s stroll spoke of endings in closed cafes and quiet streets,

IMG_5668

Of vacation being officially over.

Farewell to sun and summer,

IMG_5676

And sitting on the plaza.

IMG_5674

With pending doom from the Flatiron Building in an ominous sky,

IMG_5670

I reached for pink in mounds of mum,

IMG_5669

The color of the last hurrah.

IMG_5681Goodbye sweet summer.

‘It’s been real,’ as my mother would say. ┬áIn some cases, to real to bear.

Approaching fall a tad worse for wear, life goes on and I’m going with it.
