Surprisingly many daytime festivals

Take place this time of year

Harvest & neighborhood festivals

Endings & beginnings are fav themes here



A local festival under the rain

Yet, the many visitors do not refrain

From attending festivities

Who am I to stick to small negativities?


The Festival

Thirty years ago, today’s heat would be called intense

Multitudes of tourists, vehicles, wasps

Discomfort that clasps

Leaving the city center was a relief, in a sense

Even when a performance did speak to the sense
