early morning
sunflowers wait
for the sun

early morning
fragrance of carnations
in the sunroom

the word
I seem to say
most often
these days —
grateful

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
