the measured clatter
of my clogs

    I really like this John but if it were mine I would drop the 'enjoying', because your enjoyment is implied by the mention of 'autumn stillness'. great stuff!

    snowflakes fall
    overcoming winter silence ...

    lonely for her...
    the old hound fetches
    my wife's fleece slippers

    winter remembrance
    over cup of blue mountain coffee --
    summer chill
