A hurricane rages,
Churning the sky, dropping temps.
Happy Halloween.

Tuesday, October 30, 2012


The windchimes go mad
As armies of leaves scuttle,
Attacking passing cars.

Monday, October 29, 2012


The wind has picked up,
And the skies have grown more gray,
On the edge of storms.

Sunday, October 28, 2012


The Frankenstorm looms,
Arms stretching farther inland
Than anyone thought.

Saturday, October 27, 2012


Waiting at the door
Are painted pumpkin faces
Welcoming you in.

Friday, October 26, 2012


A chilly wind brings
An end to our warm fall days;
This is more normal.

Thursday, October 25, 2012


Re-thinking money;
Dreaming, scheming, make ends meet.
It's hard to get by.

Wednesday, October 24, 2012


The urge to write,
As large as a crashing wave
That buries cities.

Tuesday, October 23, 2012


Rain falls like kisses;
Thunder rumbles like purring.
The world is a cat.

Monday, October 22, 2012


Reading by the window;
Rain falls across the water;
Deceptive quiet.

Sunday, October 21, 2012


Thus two years have passed;
So much has happened since then,
And we still miss you.

Saturday, October 20, 2012


Same day every year,
But, for me, never gets old:
Happy birthday, me!

Friday, October 19, 2012


A new life era,
Exciting and different,
Quickly approaches.

Thursday, October 18, 2012


Pumpkin, cranberry,
Baked into a delicious,
Moist and scrumptious scone.

Wednesday, October 17, 2012


A gentle fall rain
On a quiet evening
Goes well with hot tea.

Tuesday, October 16, 2012


A hot mug of tea
Is soothing to the soul and
Also the stomach.

Monday, October 15, 2012


Mysterious sounds
Emanating from above.
Cat listens closely.

Sunday, October 14, 2012


A day of nothing,
With no travels nor functions,
Shall be well cherished.

Saturday, October 13, 2012


The weekend arrives,
When the rest of the world rests,
And no news will come.

Friday, October 12, 2012


Feeling powerless
Makes waiting so much harder.
When will news arrive?

Thursday, October 11, 2012


Time slips easily
When there is a lot to do
And life is busy.

Wednesday, October 10, 2012


A bowl of ice cream
Waits patiently in the freezer
To sooth aching souls.

Tuesday, October 9, 2012


On the day after,
I feel sore and exhausted;
There is much to do.

Monday, October 8, 2012


A black SUV
Can cause a lot of damage
When running red lights.

Sunday, October 7, 2012


A day spent with art
And surrounded by fall leaves
Is indeed lovely.

Saturday, October 6, 2012


Even a full moon
Cannot shed light upon this
Darkened parking lot.

Friday, October 5, 2012


Found in my pocket,
A coin from a far-off place,
Brings dreams of travel.

Thursday, October 4, 2012


A super long day
Filled with labor at two jobs
Is too exhausting.

Wednesday, October 3, 2012


The geese keep honking.
Is it not yet cold enough?
Fly south already!

Tuesday, October 2, 2012


A day at the zoo,
Chilly, but with fine weather,
Is well spent with friends.

Monday, October 1, 2012


What is this new thing?
Powder that comes in a tin:
Pumpkin chai latte.
