just living is not enough.

Standard

on the cusp of summer

walking by the river

three hours

before the season’s return. 

 

‘just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”

happy christmas.

Standard

I saw

a tiny tricycle 

decorated in garlands and sparkles

parked in the bike rack at the library

heard the train come through town

softly whistling the tune of jingle bells

watched the people line up 

to catch the bus to the airport

taking them somewhere

where people were waiting to see them

turned to say hello

to the man walking his dog

in his Christmas pajamas

spent the day with family and friends

playing and laughing

simply enjoying the celebration

happy Christmas everyone.

“our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at christmas-time.”

walking into october.

autumn is my time.

i am most radiant and full of energy

when the leaves are falling 

and

there is a ghost of change in the air.
