amidst the debris

on this Halloween
the trees are mostly stripped of leaves
except for those stubborn oaks and the bittersweet vines
the storm blanketed our yard with a carpet of debris
and now we are cleaning up
drying off
and thankful that we made it through unscathed

while life continues to get back to normal here
my thoughts are with my friends who have not been so fortunate
especially in New York and New Jersey
hoping for a speedy restoration

 

and for those lucky to be able to trick-or-treat tonight

Be safe

Happy Halloween!
