listening for the wind
as we count our candy —
tornado warning


October 30, 2019

foggy morning —
my heart mistakes a stranger
for my first love


October 29, 2019

walking through a cloud
mist in our hair and hands —
jewels everywhere


October 28, 2019

when I could hear
but not yet see the river —
love’s beginning


October 26, 2019

after the rain —
gently moving earthworms
back into the grass


October 25, 2019

geese calling out
their thanks to the wild blue —
my pounding heart, too


October 24, 2019

in full view
now that the leaves have fallen —
nests from last spring


October 23, 2019

sunlight beginning
to overtake starlight —
leaning into love

my father taught me
that we could see the wind —
whitecaps on the river


October 17, 2019

watching our big boy
grow into his gifts —
tall grass gone to seed


October 16, 2019

fallen ginkgo leaves
shining their golden light
back up to the sky

October 13, 2019

autumn Saturday —
we toss our neighbor’s ball
back over the fence


October 12, 2019

easier to see
now that some leaves have fallen —
the almost-full moon


October 11, 2019

whether we’re watching, 
whether it’s day or night —
stars and their confident shine


October 10, 2019

poke berries
bursting with poisonous ink —
the words I won’t write


October 09, 2019

bees in the orchard
and the sweet smell of cider —
I whisper your name


October 08, 2019

bedtime stories —
turning back to the first page
one more time


October 07, 2019

October 06, 2019

sometimes I kiss her
just to feel that sudden drop
you know the one
