November

A monochromatic palette
paints the Earth Mother.
Moldering leaves
nourish her damp skin,
promise Spring.

Late October

Cricket songs slow down.
Scarlet leaves dance along the Truckee.
Empty spaces wait like barren wombs,
embrace mounds of snow.

Submitted to Lady Nimue’s Months of the Year Challenge for the month of August…the month in which our homegrown heirloom tomatoes are abundant. It seems a bit bizarre to be writing this in sub-zero, snow-pending weather!

Heirlooms

Those brilliant red globes
peer out from behind floppy leaves.
Tomatoes galore!
