October- Homespun in the Harbor

With October comes a longing to return home, and once again be warmed by the subliminal hearth...

Sky Quilt

Where the land slopes into the sea,
A mist lingers at crest of the hill.
Torn pieces of clouds sail by,
With October's cold morning
A windswept blue patchwork sky.





October Shore

Wild bushes filled with rose hips,
And the tall wheat grasses...
Autumn harvest abundance
Winds down the rugged pathway
Onto the tawny shore meadow.

Clouds hang low over the cove...


Autumn Harbored

Clouds that touch the shallow tide's
Calm waters...

Enclosed and subdued the hues of autumn,
The sky and the sea now one...
Softly glowing.

In Closing

So true... "winter is at the doorstep waiting to knock"...so goes the circle of the seasons... and life...:0)...I love the seasons' clock and look forward to the changes...but we had a windstorm before the leaves had fully changed- around my area I found a lot of trees bare before there time...LOL...still though even with the hues being a bit mellow this year- I will miss fall...I always do.... Stella sending you a warm smile-your friend from windy Maine...:0)

Seasons never fail to captivate us, keep us on tenterhooks. Your images are getting better by the day and complement the beautiful and vivid poetry. Thanks Delicia for this exquisite share - siva

Hello Siva and good afternoon and thanks..:0)-it is this new digital age that allows me to capture the images for my poems...allowing me to save- or much more often delete pictures... I must take 20 or thirty shots before I can get the one I was truly trying to capture...LOL.. that turns out for me to be the great fun of it all ...:0)...thanks Siva... very much appreciated my friend...

Today is 22Nov, I opened your page... thinking you just posted this one today
...But was I disappointed?
I can't say compose another one soon you may.
And had I not made this mistake ...your lovely words would have vanished ... would have been an unknown loss for me...
I am creative yes....
I share all that I know
And am not secretive
We have only a life to live...
let's bask in its glory...

Especially for you... You may delete it ma’am..Delicia Powers .if you wish to...
