a pause



This is not a season
but a pause
between one future & another,
a day after a day,
a breathing space before death,
a breathing, the rain

throwing itself down out of the
bluegrey sky, clear joy.

– Margaret Atwood
(from “Rain”)

Happy National Poetry Month!

fall like rain


Fall like rain
Tore me all to pieces, nothing else remains.
~ Eric Clapton

The wind and rain took down so many leaves yesterday
it’s definitely starting to look more like November

the odd uneven time


“August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.”
~ Sylvia Plath
