Kiss me in September


Remember the song, “I’ll see you in September, when summer is gone?” Alas, September on the Eastern side, in these parts, is no summer. It’s no time for meet-ups and no angels from the heaven above make their presence felt in this season. It rains most nights and some parts of the days, even. It’s typhoon time in the Philippines, folks… Yes, that means a lot of waiting (for the rain to stop, mostly), plenty of opportunities for reminiscing good times and hoping, allegorically, for a magical spell. Whoopee!

But the jay never fails to sing out love loud enough/

So, does love pop out of the window sill like a happy, singing jay, do you meet it in the open tracks or does it single itself out – a cheerful face in the faceless, rolling crowd? Does it announce its presence, by a different tune perhaps? Does it bother to knock or simply crashes its way through and asks to be allowed – to spend the night? Does it croon or swoon or happily declares “Here, now is your boon?” Come now – consider Β for a moment – ponder the question, “Does love come in the solstice of summer, why ever not in June?”


For sunny mornings and rainy afternoons, there will be love waiting in September –Β after the good times and caring to remember – not to fall for another, never. For there are promises to keep, long days ahead to sweep, and a pledge of forever in wait. The love songs wafting in the air makes one’s heart skip a beat, the gentle wind has a message and the heart longs to give… πŸ˜‰

    A delightful, little post. Love awaits in every little corner of life under any circumstances, be it rain or sunshine. We don’t have a rainy season in Bergen, Norway, but it’s still pouring down these days. For me September is always a time of transition.

    Whoever wrote β€œI’ll see you in September, when summer is gone” hasn’t ever been to the UAE either. Here, we sing “I’ll see you in November, when summer is bearable.”

    I see you’ve returned from Boracay relaxed and inspired. You’ve written this post so beautifully.

    • β€œI’ll see you in November, when summer is bearable.” – πŸ˜‰

      hello, Nadia dear… Boracay beach is always beautiful. but we’ve heaps of problems, is why the short vacation. can’t write about that here, don’t think the reading public will find it of any interest. let the people think yours truly is simply in the mood to be subdued, haha… hope things are better on your side. πŸ™‚

  4. Interesting when you said I hadn’t been stopping by. I realized that I don’t get your post notices in my email. Hmm. Wonder why?

    • oh, i thought you were busy playing with the cute, little one… ms. lily, must be because WP changed apps and features in the last several months. likely, you’ll find your copy of my new posts at the Reader (alongside Stats and Notifications). i think WP technical transferred our access to subscription to that page. i guess, that’s what happened… thanks and cheers πŸ˜‰

  5. Very nice post dear. Love is a mystery. Wonder such a thing actually exist? πŸ™‚

    awhile ago, i was kissed by the subtle breeze that the later night of September brings… it’s murmuring a welcoming news that the dry hot summer is about to fade away soon.

    such a wondrous relief… few more shift of blowing breeze and wintertime will come knockin’ in…

    but before that….

    big cheers for the Octobeer Fest πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • hello, haribon… thanks for dropping by. good to see you. pasensya na, i haven’t been bloghopping lately. busy worrying, i guess… ^^

      ahaha, so you are being kissed by September, huh? what luck! btw, there’s winter in the desert? the season is punctuated by the beer season, eh?

      cheers and hope things are swinging well over there. regards πŸ™‚

      • Haring Ibon says:

        yes there is winter in the desert too! sa mga northern part nag nyebe rin πŸ™‚

        sa lower plains naman… around 8~10degrees temp pag peak of winter.

        kailangan na ilabas sa baul ang mga jackets at malabhan πŸ˜›

        me too… less activities sa blogs ko. weather weather din talaga.


      • ahaha, salamat sa mga is-in-ahre mo, haribon – very informative. so november is when it starts to get really cold in the desert? magbi-beer fest ka pa, bago ang laba-laba, hehe…

        hala pa, okey lang yon, para di marami ang hahabulin ko pag nag-backread, hihi…o, sya, iinom mo na lang ako, matagal na akong di nakakainom ng beer. ah, tanduay ice pala, i’ve tried that thrice – masarap naman. pero one bottle lang ako usually, di na sanay. kampay! πŸ˜‰

    hello, Ate ! It’s been awhile ! I have school now, of course, and work. It seems I cannot keep up anymore, but I try to visit all my favorite blogs. It’s a pity I don’t get your new post in my email folder, though I see I’m following you. Maybe in My Reader, but I seldom go there. My email is full to the brim, and that keeps me so busy. I don’t delete until I’ve read an email. But, I really am busy.

    Oh, is it rainy season in the Philippines? We were there in July and we experienced one or two nasty storms. They were scary. like the windows were going to be blown away.

    Anyway, see ya ! And cheers !

  8. hello, Ren… just seeing you drop by every now and then, that’s cool already, kapatid. yes, i understand – busy time at school and at the ice cream house. wow, you really got a cool job – baskin robbins galore. delicious, hehe. must be plenty of students hanging around the place, this season, ‘no? πŸ˜‰

    yes, it’s raining all the time and plenty of moss in the yard, hehe. July 2012, you were in the Phils? wow. yes, some storms are really mabagsik ^^

    hope you are busy yet happy. two cheers! πŸ™‚
