One of the host of princesses, ninjas, skeletons, and mixed-message costumed kids arriving at my door tonight. Happy Halloween! We laugh with the delight of these children basking in make-believe and candy as October ends.

week 577 ~ build up the small personal world

with 2 comments

build up the small personal world
around you let it surround you
myopically to get you through
to another day’s dreams still curled
up inside waiting once unfurled
there’ll be no going back proudly
you will stand walk ahead doubt free
but not today not yet take time
to heal make sure to wipe the grime
off the windshield so much to see

A tree full of orange leaves– so appropriate for Halloween Eve.

Another entry in the “last rose of summer” quest. We have not yet had a killing frost so the flowers still compete, although fading, with the colors of the leaves.

Catching an evening walk on a gloomy day, after a productive session at the computer working on my new book. It feels good to get outdoors and stride through the brisk fall air.

A chilly day of pouring rain. Luckily I am warm indoors, arranging music, catching up on my blog, cooking, dreaming.

Working in my yard this afternoon, on an increasingly rare warm day, I am awed by the Impressionistic beauty of the leaves of my oakleaf hydrangea. How can one plant have such a range of color!
