Double Play

Sun 9/25/11 Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

They will sing no more – the gnats stuck in the web
Threaded between the two stalks of milkweed
At least thirty to fifty little buggies trapped!
I tried to take a photo – but it just didn’t work
And the rain has washed them all away…

Mon 9/26/11 Dew Diligence

No stars to use for stage lights, the curtain was dawn mist rain
To the full orchestra of crickets practicing for the ‘Dressing of Autumn’
For when the sun caresses the foliage and the leaves fall into rainbow colors
