Blair Falls.
There's reflection in the pool
that forms below this little waterfall.
It's back to school time.
I remember the excitement I used to feel.
First, for myself  as a student.
Then, for my children.
The warm September sun welcomed
teachers, bus drivers, coaches, and friends.
 Those days are long gone now.
The buses still roll through town,
the Moms are stocking up with snacks,
the retail stores are stockpiled with goods,
and I am marveling at the reflections in the pool.
The reflection of self.
How I see myself, and how others see me.
