calling on autumn

orange night

knocks brain sideways

its ever shifting words

calling on autumn

standing on winged leaf

she presses control key

views bottom menu

makes a selection

then enters

a 300-foot hill is not a mountain

  1. It’s a mountain when you have asthma and high blood pressure and your knees are shot.

    Mary Ann, this is exactly how each of should enter the autumn times of our lives and our creative endeavors, welcoming the burnishing colors and the crisping dawns of new lives and loves and creativity.

    Wonderful Jack. The way you juxtapose varied thoughts on a contrasting theme is magical.

    Sorry Ann. I thought you were Jack Brewis. No matter, my comments remain the same.

  6. I agree with Carl on the hill/mountain…and your poem is fantastic…

  7. you’re simply refined!

  8. A 300 foot hill, is a 300 foot hill. On the other hand, those 3 inch piles in the litter box are mountains.

        Thanks – so glad you stopped by…I have not done much with the integrative thought blog as I made this commitment with myself to do haiku/haiga for 365 days…and with my life commitments, I have not done much other writing, sadly, but so glad to have you share in my thoughts.

        It happens. We all go through periods when we become much busier than we thought we would. When the time is right, you’ll write again… 🙂 Best regards, -M.A.
