White windows




some days
i feel blue
wishing for earth
to stop spinning
play with fallen
brown, yellow leaves
on moist ground

some days
i feel mellow
counting apples
i plucked from trees   
crunchy and tangy
perfect for apple pies

days tucked at edges
nights unfurling arms   
before moon rises,
windows will be encased
white nostalgic frames  



Over the long holiday weekend, we went apple picking up North of our city, and enjoyed grilled sweet corn and meat.  Our friend baked us a delicious apple pie which we consumed right away.  The weather was  overcast with cool air;  a sure sign of autumn's arrival.      And yes, that is how I feel about the autumn season.

  4. days tucked at edges, I really like that!

    We used to eat crap apples so so so so sour, no sugar could ever save them for pie.

    LOVE the photo, me being a big window and lupines fan.
