Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: Weather Amnesia

on October 10, 2019

Tarp covering pool
Lounge chairs stored for the winter
Declare summer’s end

Yet hard to believe
Squirrels still gathering acorns
Fall sunshine beams warmth

Not a bad trade-off
Bright colored leaves and white snow
Will come in due time

    I wonder sometimes about winter in Ohio. is there much lake effect from the north? Would Spring and Summer come sooner if Jim Jordan were replaced by someone who is not a junk-yard dog?

    Wonderfully done! We are in full crazy colour here in Montreal. I love this time of year.
    Now you have reminded me… must get my pool closed!

    Very evocative. I love the colours of autumn leaves – if only the rain lets up enough for us to go out to enjoy them. There’s nothing better that scrunching through mounds of fallen leaves, crisp with frost.

  4. lovely thoughts to take us into a new season.

  5. Autumn has definitely come here now, but still we get some days of warm sunshine that belong to the summer.

    We’re up to the squirrels still gathering acorns up here!
