I am grateful for many ways to read and create.

stack of art books
not needing to read today
just need them there

books on the shelf
supported by each other
kindness of friends

October Turns

cooler weather and strong winds
all the leaves falling and we see the shapes of trees
light streams into the house as the sun moves south
red geraniums still bloom
October turns to face November

poem and photos

Yesterday, I rediscovered this poem.

rain today
how soon we reach
the end of what we know
and how deep
faith continues to grow

rain today

rain today
and trees let go more leaves

autumn earth
and roots grateful for rain

autumn years now
and the seasons
are my teachers

grow, rest, renew
each season its
own beauty
