Nov 2017

As the dark descends...

It's not just Halloween
That creeps and gloms,
It's the gloom of nights that seep
Into our days earlier and earlier.

Autumn gleefully parades
Her fiery cadmium yellows and oranges
We'd better imprint them fast
They're sucked into rich burnt umbers
And eventually deep lamp blacks
Before our ever-surprised eyes.

After all these years
I'm still amazed
And, yes...

Have fun treating and/or tricking tonight.
Have a great Mo/November.
Be sure to remember
To remember
On the eleventh:
Et al.
His birthday
And his pleas
For humanity.
If this isn't nice, what is?
