Bright sunshine,
warm as summer.
Bees gather late pollen.


Bright Berries (Triolet)

Bright berries on Cotoneaster
speak of harvest time to come.
Others soon will follow after
bright berries on Cotoneaster,
in shortened days they redden faster,
ripened by late summer sun.
Bright berries on Cotoneaster
speak that harvest time has come.

Trick or Treat

The veils between the worlds are thinned.
Harvest all is gathered in.
Lock the doors from restless souls
and children dressed as ghosts and ghouls;
trick or treat!


Late blossoms. Humming
as they work, the bees harvest
nectar. Winter stores.
