SEPTEMBER

The breezes taste of apple peel. The air is full of smells to feel. Ripe fruit, old footballs, drying grass, new books and blackboards chalk in class. The bee, his hive well-honey, hums while mother cuts Chrysanthemums. Like plates washed clean with suds, the days are polished with a morning haze.
