Hello Autumn by Stan Phillips Even though September can often be a golden month filled, as it always is, with the trees turning to flame and great flocks of birds preparing to fly off to far away places. It is still, no matter how glorious it might be, the harbinger of things to come, like; The ending of Summer. That 'return to school' feeling. Clocks going back. The days growing shorter. And those wistful shades of Autumn that promise winter. And though there is much to anticipate in the months ahead.
Lots of deeds and doings and fun to be had in the magic of unfolding life. It is still a little sad as we watch another used up August shuffle off into memory. Taking the glory of summer, slowly, but surely with it. Stan Phillips (C)2020
Stan Phillips is an 80 year old poet, musical podcast maker, part-time wannabe male model, and occasional stand up comedian. “I used to be a psychotherapist/counsellor when I had an honest job. I was born into prewar London, and attended 17 schools (my father believed they couldn’t hit a moving target) and I eventually finished up here in Ireland. Still wondering what I will be when I grow up — but enjoying writing my quirky poetry as I do so.” Discover more about Stan on Mom’s Favorite Reads website: https://moms-favorite-reads.com/moms-authors/stan-phillips - 60 -
