A Different Haunting…

Banana moon in the clear morning sky
Bone chilling frost highlighted by the glow of silvery stars
Out before the arrival of the daily paper ~
Some days it is better to start without bold headlines
And just enjoy the sigh-lence

Cold Snap

Seeking shelter I see red flashes of the Cardinal
Flying from tree to tree escaping snowflakes
Finding shelter under a heavy snow laden bough

In my own home I watch the orange and yellow flames dance
My only heat source when the power fails…

October Silence…

After a night of freezing rain –
After putting up a pot of stew for lunch and maybe dinner too
A peek out the kitchen window – flakes of white!
No more tip tip tapping on the sky light
For the first snow of the season has started at 9:30 this morning!

Snow?

The forecast calls for “White”
Just a tad early for this area
Slowly slipping from red, orange, and yellow
To the all weather conifer greens
And yesterdays’ all grey dripping sky drew from me heavy sighs

Nuts!

Out the back picture window
I’d love to take a photograph of what I imagine
To be eight giant sunflower seeds
At the bank of the creek…the ducks are facing the water
But just opening the porch door will cause feathers to ruffle

Sky Lyre

I imagine I see a new instrument in the dawn
While waiting for the traffic light to change –
Electric wires are drawn like lines between street poles
The music is written and played by Mourning Doves
As they hop between, and rearranging themselves…
