November Browns

Brings brown.
Brun branches.
Taupe trees.
Tan tall grass.

Dirt brown ground.
Stone stones.
Brown is beautiful.
Against baby blue skies.

Vignette: Chambermaid

People at work.

Clean up.
Straighten up.
Fold up the towels.
Wipe up the counter.
Make up the bed.

Fluff the pillows
...leave a chocolate.

It's Raining Leaves

A quiet street. Not a soul around.
But the leaves put on a show anyway.
Like acrobats they glide thru the air,
flying with the greatest of ease.
Like dancers they pirouette,
turning, and whirling.
Done- they nosedive, nudged by the wind.
And like trained pilots,
land with precision,
on a runway of pillows-
red, orange, yellow and green.

Pastel, 5x7, $100.
