Like clipper ships
on sky blue seas
the days sail by
on summer’s breeze

Time holds her breath
beneath the haze
and waits to breathe
September days

And waits to breathe...

Perfect description.

I think we all feel that expectancy of less haze, changing schedules, settling into a new rhythm, and fall!
