Gold and Spices
A new month. And in the case of September, you need to go out (on a daily basis) and take auspices. Which means, in a sense, taking Au (gold) and spices. It's an amazing progress, dismaying to summer folk, perhaps, but summer on the way out is as auspicious as summer was on the way in, way back in June. Gilded now, mature, experienced, narrated by the threnody (time for that word again) of crickets. The early lapping-in of evening on the tideline of the afternoon. September plays a flute. The tune it plays? Well, to find out you need to go out and take gold and spices.
