I can

Many times I climbed
right up that “do not climb” hill.
Don’t tell me I can’t.

My photo, of my “do not climb” hill.
Ok.. I don’t actually own the hill..

feels like summer

Summer remnants fall
beside fading autumn leaves.
Quick! Rake it all in.

(my) Life Directions

Take two steps forward. 

One step back.  Repeat. Again. 

Smile. The wheel goes ’round.

Morning Moon

morning moon clings tight
to last signs of night over
black tree silhouettes

I took this pic the other morning…  while walking my dog in the wee hours of the morning.   Something I need to start doing more of again…  now that I can… and while I can…
I love it when the moon is still out during the day. On this morning, there were actually stars still out too.  But, it was quite cloudy, and my camera is not the best so it did not capture the stars.  Actually, try as I might, I can never really even remotely capture the beauty I see when I look up at the sky.  Still… I find myself looking up, and trying, time and time again.  A bad habit of mine that I hope I never give up.

Again

how soon we forget
yesterday’s slippery slopes
’til footing gives way
