Winter soon

Winter soon
as December begins
this week, with
wind and rain
some snow today,
and the gourds
in the garden are
food for a squirrel
who doesn’t seem
to mind the weather

I’m grateful Karl brought the gourds home from our Town of Holland Recycling Center. They decorated the house and now the garden.


we forgot
the shopping list
and between
the two of us
almost everything

new growth
on blue spruce trees
