November afternoon

November afternoon
I have an appointment
with the light
in my study

dishes washed
and put away
time with poetry
in my study

sunrise

for as long
as I can remember
the wonder of books

Forsythia Leaves

Forsythia leaves are falling now too. The way the light falls on the perennial gardens and paths is beautiful. Daffodils, primroses, ferns, daylilies, and wildflowers will return. Orange pumpkins add bright color to the scene. As wonderful as the flowers were, are, and shall be – this restful beauty is so welcome. I enjoy October colors, and then November as well.

Poems in this post are by Ellen Grace Olinger.
