“Falling Fast”

“Fall Fire Sky” © C.P. Hickey 2019


“Falling Fast”


All treats are out

Last leaves left still spinning down

Votes have been cast


Veterans to be honored

Pumpkiny goodness disappeared

More signs of Christmas advance


Stagnant furnaces fire up

Blankets are added

Lawns put-off, now prepared


First frost

Harvest collected

Sun moves farther away


Snow will have its way

Wind will peel back things

Seasonal death dying


Long winter naps

Radiators rickety spit

Window panes fog up


Fall, falling fast

New England Beauty

Colors paint Autumn

There are many projects on tap at the end of this year, so please stay tuned. The month of November promises to be rich with poetry, and we’ll be looking into creating another Advent Calendar of blog posts for 2021. We’ll see a different story, memory, picture, etc. behind a series of mysterious and decorated doors.
