(g) OctaTimbre/ Another Fall Observation (10.22)

Another Fall Observation
(OctaTimbre – eight words per ten lines)

You wonder sometimes if people are paying attention
Especially when you have to show your identification
Which I did several times this past week
Only one person wished me an early greeting
For my natal day anniversary; mile or millstone?
While the seasons may be changing, I wonder
How much have I? …in my own autumn
Far from my final winter – so I hope.
Daylight decreases, anxiety does not have to increase
As I plod along as I always have…

Feeding Interests
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Sometimes when trading books – you get
Lucky and get something that is
A keeper, maybe not for you
But for someone else – at the train
Station’s You Trade Em book box
A treasure …buried deep under
Some religious ‘tracts’ was a book
About a sunken ship namely
The Titanic that I know will
Entertain Son of Son for hours!

A Day Full of ‘Son of Son’
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Will it float or will it sink… boats
Made from Lego bricks, some listed
The young scientist needs to know
Especially what will happen
To his build of the Titanic!
After lunch plans to visit the
Library to buy and borrow,
A stop at a neighborhood park
First, then a drive by to the bank
That’s how we spent most of the day

list , listed, listing (boating): it means something prob broke and water began filling the boat hull. as it fills with water it begins to become unbalanced and starts to lean over ( list )

Pip, Pip Hooray!
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Everyone is getting into
Leaving painted rocks around town
Some have inspirational words
Thoughtful little pick me ups to
Bring smiles and encouragement for
Those who find these little gems stones.
Others have gotten creative
With their decorating, I found
sort of a cube, a fake “die” job
A fun surprise for me to find

Seriously…
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

At six fifteen in the morning
In the month of October-brr
It is thirty-eight degrees when
I get the morning paper that
Is waiting for me at the end
Of my drive, and it is quite dark
Orion silently dances
In the velvet sky, in the east
Dawn in autumn can arrive with
Frost, though ‘Dog Days’ can be warmer…

Though Dog Days are more related to summer,
We can have some in Autumn too.

Autumn Druge?
(OctaTimbre in syllables)

Theirs is a treeless lawn where the
Leaves congregate and fall from a
Variety of neighborhood
Oaks, maples, ash, chestnut, others;
Named just some that shed their colors –
They’ve put up a temporary
Fence in a hope to block what blows
They pick up their rakes, take their piles
Straight across the street and put them
Under the major offender…

Holes?
(OctaTimbre in characters/symbols not including spaces)

Sighing 4
The 1 sole
Of 2 worn 2
Zero from
Seeking 1
Answer me
Of wholes
Sum truth
Explain 0
That Zen?
