lonely courtyard
under the night sky
chill of fall mingle with blues
change is coming

Photo not mine, it’s the prompt: Neighborhood  of Color

pastel houses
basking in the summer sun
hint of the masters

Spirit & Joy

october surprise
warm air linger at fall’s edge
north wind in limbo
spirit of the holidays
waits joyfully in the wind

on the credenza
birthday cake still in the box
first birthday party

flickering shadows –
the images of ancestors
cast by candle light

lighted by a candle
ancestors past and present
in whispered prayer
