Old lattice work fence
laying forlorn on sidewalk.
Calm after the storm.

White moth orchid is
dropping its beautiful blooms.
A new leaf grows out.

In a sunny patch,
on the couch back, the cat sleeps.
The rest of us work.

Warm, sleeping bundle
of paws, tummy, and whiskers.
The furnace labours.

Pelting rain reminds
me that the summer’s long gone.
Inside orchids bloom.

It’s the day before
the autumnal equinox.
Spring bulbs put down roots.

Sound of the neighbours’
lawnmower drifts through windows.
Summer’s last slow song.

Grey clouds brood, but there
is light on the horizon.
Wasps live their last days.

A distinctive taste
in the deep green basil leaves.
Bright red tomatoes.

Cooling down in shade
lies my silver tabby cat.
Fall clouds are coming.

Autumn bird songs drift
quietly to waiting ears.
Summer’s fever’s gone.

Dew dripping down glass,
window sills- rat a tat tat.
Distant marching band.

Like a curtain that
opens to reveal a view,
the thick fog has cleared.

fills me as my red tea steeps.
Morning’s small pleasures.

Awakened. Thunder
peels in the moist air. Lightning.
Startled sleeping cat.

Killer whales surface,
in calm waters of Ross Bay.
Heron pays no heed.

Autumn crocuses
sprout from the damp soil, while leaves
fall to the wet ground.

Oh foul vinaigrette
stings my throat and makes me cough.
Why did I choose thee?
