Candy coated apples and

Pumpkins on the prowl.

Russet covered landscapes and

Coyotes, how they howl.

Dark Moon cold of evenings and

Day’s enfolding heat,

Hot cider for the cousins and

Oatmeal cookies fresh to eat.

Cinnamon does spice the air and

Sage a seasoning makes.

There’s many things to finish and

Mom bakes and bakes and bakes.

Apple sauce and pumpkin pie and

Roast turkey for the taking,

In her wise and ageless way,

A holiday Mom’s making.

In our very troubled times and

In our times of need,

It’s fruitful to remember this and

These wise words to heed.

It never can be said enough and

At the top this ranks.

When everything seems dark and dim,

Give thanks, give thanks, give thanks.

I'm a writer. But I'm also a wife and a mom to a couple of fur babies. You could call me a cook (but never a chef, I'm not that good) and provisioner as well. Laundress? Yeah. Probably. I design jewelry and I crochet. But mostly I love to write. I love words and how they sound. I love their meanings and origins. I love stringing them together. And of course, I love to read. Thinking about it just now, I realize that what I love most is life and the people around me with a special place set aside for my wonderful husband, our adorable dog and our inscrutable cat. It's the world and the people in it that fuels my writing. So thanks to you all for being the amazing beings that you are.
