A Season Somewhere
Daniel Budd


Itís the end of the season
And the peaches, once ripe and succulent,
Are now mealy and sprout molds
By the time I get them home from market.

Itís always the end of a season somewhere
And sometime, all time a progression of endings,
Passings, from one amazement of Life to another,
With roving moments of freshness

Like the sunlight bright on the back fence
This one morning.

Yes, it IS always the end of a season somewhere - probably always the end of a season of some kind right here. Thanks for the insights in this poem.

So much expressed in that line, "Passings, from one amazement of Life to another."
