Summer's End

It really is the end of summer, right here, right now. I can hear the early September wind gusting along the street and the rain is tapping on my windows. I can hear too, the sound of something or other being blown about and am prompted to glance out of my window at my new old car. Just checking. It is a lovely dark shiny green. I have never owned a green car before and I like it. It looks good in the rain.
I always know too, when the end of summer is here. The letterbox on my back door begins to rattle. Not all the time. Just enough to keep me on my toes and give me a start now and then. I will have to tape it up with a little masking tape. I wonder if my neighbours have to do that too. The river behind my home funnels the wind and sometimes it moans and howls. Not now though, not yet, just a little letterbox rattling.

When I was a chid, I loved the freedom Summer brought. Freedom to explore the woods and the parks, the canals and the rivers. Summer was a magical time. The ending of summer was like the ending of freedom. Things change though, as they always do, and during my teenage years summer's end began to represent that freedom. Early September rain washed away more than just the dirt and dust from those city streets. I was free to roam in a new direction....

nice glimpse

a strong magnet could help the mailbox chatter without the taping... an adhesive foam would too.

Hey, thanks big brother, a magnet is a great idea. It was a little glimpse into my life, just having fun really. I was going to write a story, or poem but just opted for that moment lol....
I was hoping it read a little quirky....sometimes my sense of humour doesn't really come across on paper. I have an idea that the next thing I should write is a snapshot of my day and a description of my home. I live a little differently from other people and who knows, some might find it entertaining.

Regards midicon.

Opting for the moment is always a great thing as what could ever happen outside of it?



Your writing style is easy to read as it flows right along and the addition of sensory perceptions and how you relate to their occurrence interesting... I say got for it.

Thanks for your kindness SyxPak...

It was a bit short and I should have added more but done is done lol...

Sadly all of that was true...

Regards midicon.

You are Welcome.
Fact can, at times, be better to write about than something fictional...
This is one of those times!!
