he came early today. screaming round the garden.
a gentle feel, all chill and autumn mist already,
with us only mid august, yet we know the signs the feel,
the smell of the tide in the air, here.
we panic as the small boy grows, as times passes.
they say quicker now, yet i am not so sure.
i went to town yesterday, saw the signs of another
world. stood in the bank some time, only one
assistant these days.
the sun colours the clouds with empathy.
