Shortest Day

As we drove home from our escape to the mountains this evening, we noted the throng of pedestrians walking onto the Brooklyn Bridge. The setting sun was the draw. That huge setting sun was a blaze of orange, just sitting at the waters edge. This made for specular views on approach to the bridge while driving. I have never noticed the sun this size before. Too busy not looking up, I guess. I’m not sure what caused it, but it was a sight to behold three days before Christmas!

lolls in evening sky-

Nectar Drunk – A Cherita

a day very well spent

the rose garden is drenched
in the perfume of the blooms

I am one with the birds,
bees and butterflies
in a nectar drunk funk

Coconut Drops

As the coconuts roll around in the cart
Their shells clunking together took me back to younger days

The smell of coconut boiling with brown sugar and ginger is everywhere
For the whole day it seems
In the end, a crunchy treat from childhood

Sugar & Spice

butterfly’s flutter
whispers of sugar and spice –
buzz of bumble bee

honeysuckle’s heady scent
beckons both naughty and nice

sorting through old memories
