Trick II

the masked is unmasked
by cantankerous tricksters
nasty ranglings

This political season there has been a lot of flinging in the dirt and just plain flinging dirt. Now everyone is in the dirt. Roaming hands and Weiners, weiners in hand! Yep! We’re headed into the final bout…Who shall it be!!
Who. Shall. It. Be!

spells abound true, false
painted pumpkins treats no tricks

creeping vines
in deep fall colors
race over

Feather Pen/Quill

deep longing
set forth in prose-
a feather pen

by light of candle
the swirl of a feather pen
sweet prose of longing


 ink stained fingers
thoughts making their way through quill
bits of poetry

“I am in truth the Steppenwolf that I often call myself;
that beast astray that finds neither home nor joy nor nourishment
in a world that is strange and incomprehensible to him.”~ Herman Hesse, Steppenwolf ~

vines snake up tree trunks
garland of autumn colors
tall trees dressed for fall

Thursday Doors

door 20160422_222632.jpg

Taken on the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.  The back of these homes have a view of the skyline of Manhattan. Fabulous at nights and during the day as well! They’ve been around since the 1800s


That is a elevator door is probably the only original part of this building. The SUNY  College of Optometry. This is on 42nd street, across from Bryant Park.
