all the way home

    driving and talking
    in circles

    River,
    nicely done, as was the poem posted on 10/22.

    the rhythmic drip
    of the kitchen faucet...
    winter deepens

    late snack
    harvest moon, total eclipse
    tin key spirals round can

    crisp winds swirling
    childrens laughter
    lifted to the heavens

    cross winter skies
    flight of balloons ...
    never to return home
