Tag: October

we drove North

we drove North
to see fall colors

along the way
snow fell and
lightly covered

fields of soybeans,
corn, and other crops

and the wind
painted one side
of tall trees
with the snow

My poem is from my post for October 20, 2018.

October Colors

grey sky
green and
gold leaves

another window
full of clouds
and some blue

pumpkins
in the yard

colors at home
as I read and write

Hosta and Pumpkins

IMG_1042

We bought two pumpkins at local stores.  Karl placed them by the hosta that surrounds our ash tree that fell during the late summer storm.  We will keep part of the stump and the hosta.  Create in a new way.  The tree showed signs of the Emerald Ash Borer, which has affected so many trees in the area.

The pumpkins also look nice by the front porch hosta.  Previous owners planted the hosta a long time ago.  They are hardy plants.

Poem

geraniums

cooler weather and strong winds
all the leaves falling and we see the shapes of trees
light streams into the house as the sun moves south
red geraniums still bloom
October turns to face November
