Photo, mine

cool air has taken
on winter’s chill colors gone
the crunch of dry leaves
beneath my feet waiting for
snow to hasten their demise

Carpe Diem Haiku: Autumn Departs

#Daily Haiku Challenge

Fate & Stars

 

Photo, mine

a white moonflower
comes to life in the moonlight
just living her fate

no fault of the stars, tonight’s
moon is wielding her magic

Haiku Horizons

I’m not sure who’s more confused, me or these daisies. I planted them in a pot from seeds this past spring. When it flowered in the same year I freaked! – with happiness:)) And here it is, still flowering..at the end of November surrounded by fallen leaves!!!

Gold & Sing

Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge 

For Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge. To me, the thing that’s oddball about this is that it’s proudly sitting on the sidewalk!! Which is a huge no-no around here. And it’s a rust bucket proudly wearing new tires striped to match. I wonder if they’re going to keep it like that.
I don’t know the make or model, if anyone does please share.


This is the biggest button & needle I’ve ever seen. Taken in the garment district where all things sewing can be found. If you make your own clothes, it’s heaven!
