Busy day ahead,
An intro to the season.
Shopping, caroling.

Thursday, November 29, 2012


A thin film of ice
Now covers the pond's surface,
And the ducks fall through.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012


An old black and white
Speaks across generations,
And still brings us thrills.

Tuesday, November 27, 2012


The ducks have returned,
Though the pond started to freeze.
Why don't they fly south?

Monday, November 26, 2012


Dreary afternoons
Make blankets more appealing
Under cloud cover.

Saturday, November 24, 2012


The first cold flurries,
Accompanied by harsh wind,
Approached from the West.

Friday, November 23, 2012


A cold rain at night
Freezes in cold morning wind.
First bite of winter.

Thursday, November 22, 2012


It is important
To take time out and reflect.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Wednesday, November 21, 2012


The sun sets too soon,
And the days feel much too short.
The nature of Fall.

Tuesday, November 20, 2012


After a long day,
It's nice to sit in silence,
Sipping a cool drink.

Monday, November 19, 2012


The geese have gathered,
Flying in from the far north,
Settling on our pond.

Sunday, November 18, 2012


A foggy morning,
Thick, gray, chilly, and quiet,
In mid November.

Saturday, November 17, 2012


The water's surface
Is calm, just like a mirror,
And reflects the sky.

Friday, November 16, 2012


A long day ahead;
I try to face it with zeal.
The Feast is coming.

Thursday, November 15, 2012


A night of romance,
A regency love story,
A night with Austen.

Wednesday, November 14, 2012


With a to-do list,
Are tasks easier or worse?
It's hard to decide.

Tuesday, November 13, 2012


Getting a good deal
Makes the chest swell with fierce pride.
Saving money's great!

Monday, November 12, 2012


Days off are lessened
When one works for one's true love
And does not get paid.

Sunday, November 11, 2012


The cold makes things dry.
There's a modern solution:

Saturday, November 10, 2012


A warm cup of tea
That tastes like sugar cookies.
Tis the holidays!

Friday, November 9, 2012


A washed out green-grey
Formed by heaven years ago,
Moldavite: space glass.

Thursday, November 8, 2012


The lingering smell
Of a crackling camp fire,
Chatter and laughter.

Monday, November 5, 2012


Remember the 5th,
So the rhyme tells us to do,
Thanks to a movie.

Sunday, November 4, 2012


The weather's grown cold-
Too cold and bitter for me!
Has winter come soon?

Saturday, November 3, 2012


It's far too easy
To lose track of one's days.
I feel lost in time.

Friday, November 2, 2012


The Day of the Dead
Has many names in many tongues,
But always holy.

Thursday, November 1, 2012


A forgotten day,
Once political and holy,
Is All Hallow's Day.
