Cottages are closed.

Shutters replace screens.

A few toys forgotten on lawns.

A fishing pole leans against.

the shed.  The lilac bush is

asleep.  Lawn chairs stacked.

The porch is empty.  Rose bushes

covered.  Mail boxes prepare for

winter.  Scattered leaves dot lawns

and roads.  A few seagulls pass

quietly overhead.  A stray cat

wanders freely.  Clouds seem lower.

The air is full of low tide aroma.

Radios are put away.  Beach towels

washed and folded.  Faith encourages

the change of seasons.
