End of Summer

For the Phillies on the home stretch

3 to 6 to 1

Masterpiece of time and grace,

Baseball at its best

Jim Ryan and the Friends of Pennypack

Quiet Pennypack

Flows gently through shade and sun…

Distant football sounds

The boardwalk

Squawking gull goes off

Like a two-noted rooster

Claiming the morning.

Time to head south.

Birds, thousands of birds

Darkening Avalon’s skies

On the long way south

Life is brief.

In time, the leaf falls

And the tree remembers it

For a little while.
