Dear August

Dear August,
I love you. Please don’t go.

You are the unhurried end of summer, when it all starts to unravel.

Some folks rush to start a sparkling, perfect autumn. But I’m not ready. I still need to walk out the back door without shoes on. I need to eat garden tomatoes. I need to see the wheat stubble turn that awesome bronze color. I need to celebrate birthday week for at least ten more days.

I am messy and imperfect, and so are you, August. I love that.

You remind me that it really doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.

August, I’ll miss you.

Sincerely,
Frances
