Night’s Sound

Crickets
Welcome us
Long after we
Arrived home – their music:
Chirps

Though
Yesterday she,
Little Miss declared
she’d heard the season’s
first…

Now
at home
they serenade me…
I imagine Pinocchio’s pal

‘Inn’ tertwined ‘Inn’ terpretations

Yesterday – several fender benders
And ‘alligators’ – parts of tires left from other
Accidents line the sides of the roads

Some ‘roadkill’ being devoured
By the highway buzzards
Who evidently know where to look.

Yesterday a pizza delivered was dinner
Close to the tenth hour of the eve –
To the Inn of choice when traveling…

As a member of the ‘club’
We sometimes get to choose the ‘gift bag’
Or garner more ‘points’

Yesterday not much time for play –
Though I finished another murder –
A book that is – one of four in the series.

To look at another positive:
In the end there was ‘overtime pay’ –
And at least we were together

Notes:
…road alligators are often in the middle of the roadway and on the side of the highway. So, what are we talking about? A rubber on the road is known as a “road alligator” because of its appearance. Tire chunks are frequently found on the shoulder or in the middle of the street after
a tire blows out, shreds, or sustains tread separation.”

Roadkill: Not a pretty site – look it up on Wiki.

BE11: Here’s Looking at You…

On a short journey to the back of the yard, I happened to met the groundhog
that lives under my shed. Just about ten feet away – I was walking to the creek –
stopped and looked to my right – and there the animal with ever curious eyes
stayed stock still and looked at me. So I engaged in a one sided conversation.
Basically stating the beauty it possessed, that I meant no harm, and could holes
be dug on the other side of the creek. To prove my courtesy, I kept the distance.
Then turned to walk back home. Relief at the disconnect of human contact, the
groundhog then scurried away into the bramble.

unexpected prize
up close and personal; be
in sync with nature

Intuition

Whether you call it “a gut feeling,” “flying by the seat of your pants,” or
having spirit guides whisper to you, there is no denying that intuition
should be a part of every decision.
