Wistful Novemeber

Good people.

Good people.

November? So soon?

You bring your little candle to my door -

and ask for nothing

and leave

a smile.

Good people.



I know that all your families face challenges
and heartache . . .

My particulars are a paralyzed brother-in-law
a farmer - in an accident.

An aunt who will always be the tomboy
that led us on safaris and later to Aida . .
now facing endings.

Because you asked, good friends . . .
The plumbing is cranky ;0)
The shoulder is creaky ;-(
Still - fall came with color and breeze;
and pumpkins grinning from porches.

All will be well.

Sending love and smiles your way.

So sweet to find you here!
I feel I must zip in and catch you before you leave.
Dear Cathy.
How I miss your voice--such a wonderful writer, seer, giver.
Be well.

Are you still writing poetry (other than this blog)? Can you share any?

I have missed you so, Cathy.

I am sorry for the struggles, the pain you and yours are enduring.

If there is anything at all I can do to help, please don't hesitate to let me know.

You are loved,

Nice to see you around, even for just a monthly visit. Hope things are "looking up" for you soon.

But it's December now....
I'm putting up a December poem soon.

And hope all is well.
Best holiday wishes to you and your family.
