I am taking part in First Line Friday at MLMM today. As I wrote a poem rather than a story, the given first line is actually the first 2 lines of my poem.

August approached,
In a golden, sweltering haze —
August approached,
As fears of the future encroached:
What will come after summer days?
Yet in multifaceted ways,
August approached.

  1. “As fears of the future encroached” you really express what I feel but been trying to ignore as July quickly counts down to August. Thanks for sharing this! 🌹
