short poems for October

red_carnation

trimming the stems
of carnations
and giving them
fresh water
October sun

* * *

birds finding their shape migration

* * *

willow branches
reach to ground
humility

* * *

October goes by
one day at a time
lowering
storm windows
here and there

* * *

raindrops
on bare branches – how gold
remaining leaves

* * *
