The Day After

Edgy disquiet,
like a balloon
with a slow leak,
no longer hovering
in anticipation
of excitement.

Summer slipped sunshine
into late August days,
lulled my inner clock
away from seasonal shifts.
I believed more weeks waited
on my horizon before school
term restarted, but no, today
brings September to my doorstep;
a few more days and fall
finds her way into my backyard.
