Morning Revelry a # Cherita


morning revelry

call of the crow
pierce gray autumn skies

a distant response
and he soars,
whole again

Waves of fallen leaves
Being chased by autumn gust
A moving quilt
Twin maples now stand naked
Undressed for fall
No doubt undergoing their
Syrup making phase
It is the oddest thing still,
to get a whiff of maple syrup
Untouched by humans come spring
After these many years,
This amazes me still

blue smoke curls
around burning log
telling tales

Thotpurge Micropoetry Month

* Photo of a wall of a building Downtown Brooklyn painted mat black and the artist add these doodles. The whole facade, top to bottom, looks like scribbling on chalk board. But this is far from temporary. Fascinating! !


Inevitable Journey


deep into autumn
color of the fallen leaves fade
gone are illusions
inevitable journey
a path we all have to take

gray fall skies

Black Eyed Susan




Something is going on with my black eyed susan. Something funky! Looks like it’s growing another head, or a hat? I never grew them before. The coolest thing about them is that I planted them as seeds early last spring and by summer, I had flowers. Very cool!!

So now, when I thought they should by dying down…I noticed the various stages above. Maybe I just wasn’t paying close enough attention the first time around and this has all happened before.

Does anyone know what is going on?? It’s all very interesting and makes for great photos.

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