I loved today

Ah, today was a perfect autumn day – rain gently falling with that wisp of chill in the air. It made me think of winter coming. I love autumn and winter – my favourite seasons. imagesimages20080210_025906_svvc_plant_GALLERY

Wonderful Friends

 Gentle eyes that see so much,
Paws that have the quiet touch,
Purrs to signal "all is well"
And show more love than words can tell.
Graceful movements touched with pride,
A calming presence by my side–
A friendship that takes time to grow–
Small wonder why I love her so.


In poetry, autumn is associated with melancholy – the possibilities of summer are gone, and the chill of winter is on the horizon.
Who now has no house, will not build one (anymore).
Who now is alone, will remain so for long,
Will wake, and read, and write long letters
And back and forth on the boulevards,
Will restlessly wander, while the leaves blow.
