Listen October

Listen October –

Why are you Golden-

Why are days Shorter-

Where is the Sun-

What do you say – eh?


Here says the Sun –

Just behind Clouds-

Just farther Away-

Still your bright Star-

Still shining above.


Night’s Glittering stars-

Show me the Bear-

Show me some Sisters-

Show me the Hunter

Look up – said the Sky

Emily Dickinson provided the inspiration in Fashion Me Your Words today at Real Toads.

Lady October

Over in the Garden we’re writing about October
Lady October

She’s wrinkled and worn
Her beauty fading fast
She limps through the days
Energy waning
longer each night
of lost youth
under a hoarfrost blanket
Cold hands hiding her
warm heart
