A heron, still here, not yet migrating!

Good afternoon, Friends. This is Mary tending the bar for our first Open Link in September, looking forward to reading some fine poems today! It is always a pleasure to see what each of you offers on Open Link Days.

Before we begin, perhaps a little talk around the bar would be a pleasant diversion: How has your September begun? Are the children off to school? Is your vegetable garden yielding its bounty? Are there harvest festivals to attend? Have leaf colors begun to change? One restaurant here sent an email that they are beginning to serve their seasonal pumpkin pancakes. I guess it really is time to begin thinking about autumn. Sigh. And annoyingly enough, there are already Halloween items for sale in our stores.  A bit early for my tastes, but…….

As you join the conversation below, before or after adding your ONE poem, why not share with us one of the things that you enjoy about September!

What to do next, for those who are visiting for the first time:

  • Enter a link directly to your poem and your name by clicking Mr Linky below
