Except for the figs

Late summer
the tomatoes are spent
the native sages have grown, flowered and faded
as much as they can
in a drought year
several trees died
nothing did well
except for the figs....

the surf
such as it is
in the summer
has had a few moments
but nothing
that will remain
in memory
for very long
"remember the thunder from down under?"

the crowds, the tourist
have had a field day
infesting the beaches
but no riot at HB this year...

the last few days
a cold snap (upper 70's) for August
always a warm month
I have noticed the change of season
the plants
they don't have calendars
they ARE calendars...
they know and
are turning
completing the circle...

so now the temps will
crank back back up in a few days
but still

the weather will cool
the kids will go back to school
and things will change

back to normal
back to the fall
