October 31, 2014

Excitement building,
costumes donned, the children wait-
candy from strangers.

Grey ceiling above
the old house's steep peaked roof.
Evergreens lend hue.

Sun breaks through autumn's
gloom to give bright summer dreams.
But the trees are bare.

October 27, 2014

A snug box for cat,
a desk, chair, and screen for me.
I'd rather be cat.

October 26, 2014

Grey skies weep, dark days,
rain steadily pours, red leaves.
It must be autumn.

October 22, 2014

Not even the sound
of pouring rain makes me sleep.
My thoughts beg paper.

October 21, 2014

The morning is glum,
melancholy autumn gloom.
My red tea tastes grey.

Monday, 20 October 2014

October 20, 2014

I place the tea leaves
into the teapot and wait.
Morning cup of bliss.

Please don't  dance with me,
just give me tuna instead.
My cat's Sunday thoughts.

Sunlight filters through
Norfolk Pine by the window.
Shadow echoes grace.

October 17, 2014

Sleep bookended by
my restless contemplations.
Dreams slip through my hands.

That strange smell of gas
can't mean good things for the car.
Mechanic visit?

Wednesday, 15 October 2014

October 15, 2014

Don't want to smudge you,
but I have to get stuff done.
Nail polish troubles.

October 11, 2014

Pattering of rain,
brings cat running for the door.
His day out is ruined.

October 10, 2014

Restless night of sleep,
leaves me bleary eyed and tired.
Try again tonight.

October 9, 2014

Fog horns in the night,
when I drift in sea of sleep.
Morning, sun on haze.

October 8, 2014

I listen to one-
hit wonders. Where are they now?
Have they blown their cash?

Tuesday, 7 October 2014

October 7, 2014

Can't remember what
a peaceful day round here was.
Quiet will return.

October 6, 2014

Somehow possible,
it's louder out there today-
sidewalk construction.

October 4, 2014

Autumn weather rains
down outside. Wrapped in cashmere,
I just can't complain.

Friday, 3 October 2014

October 3, 2014

Blinding sun beats down
on my morning chair. Sunbathe
in comfort of home.

October 2, 2014

Nights of sleeplessness,
I long for natural sleep.
Fall asleep, wake up.

October 1, 2014

Sounds like the world is
ending, road construction. It's
just the summer gone.
