I watch you
cutting strawberries
in the amber afternoon,
sun on its midway 
to autumn;
you won't let me help
because secretly
only half of them
make it to the bowl.
          
I smile back 
at your playful eyes
because
you know.
   
It feels like
an old August,
in my stomach
some sort of sadness
some sort of joy.

Last night's thunderstorm
has left the ocean agitated,
wildly 
beautiful.
Life is nothing
but a vacant place, today
and we shall
let it be,
let the world
wait for us, today.

Cross legged
on my piano bench,
I play for the cat
a winter Debussy
she's happy,
I could tell
she smiles.

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-05-22
An Old August by AlwaysRainCheck is, as the suggester says, filled with "pleasant yearning, slightly tinged with melancholy". Aggressive enjambment highlights an ordinary day and enriches it with meaning. ( Suggested by ezradeacon and Featured by ShadowedAcolyte )

I am not at all surprised that this received a DD. It's exquisite, delicately crafted, filled and brimming with the light that hearkens the change in the year, the pivot from summer into fall. I know this timeless time. I know this place. Share it?

I thought you might be someone who, like me, felt that shift in the light, in the wind of change, Earth's polarity subtly changing... :heart:
Thank you for sharing the sojourn!
