The Beauty Of Fall Colors.

the sunrise in flames
in the trees a golden fire
meets the cooling sky
sweet maple syrup on bark
I steal a taste of Autumn

picking at my food
I eat like my feathered friends
stealing a bite here
taking some back to my nest
just in case someone drops in

Doggone Dog

Doggone dog
denying disappointment daily
deftly digs deep ditches
diligently in dirt
destroying defenseless daffodils
disregarding demographics
dramatically disappearing
different days.
Doggone distressing!

a purple daisy-
my thoughts like a whirligig
spinning petals of joy

People Watching

I sashay down the busy street
my reasoning is quite concrete
the storefronts offering sales and heat
my happy feet they keep the beat.

The many honking cars compete
and traffic lights keep traffic neat
I stop to gawk and take my seat
I watch the crowd without conceit.

As they walk by I look to greet
in case our eyes should chance to meet
and meeting them is such a treat
as I head home, my day complete.
