October Days by Carolyn Head

October days! How nature shouts,
so many ways
With bundled sheaves and rustling leaves,
in splendid blaze.

O, what sights! What nippy nights,
harbingers of change soon
To come, with frosty bites,
shivery delights, and harvest moon.

Winter will march on! A howling, blustery,
mountain king,
Scattering furry ones, scampering,
gathering quondam glean.

Pond and lake with icy sheen-
unlikely resting place,
For airborne tenacities and dancing
dervish lacy flakes.

Thanksgiving Delights

On Thanksgiving Day we're thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.
For sun to light and warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.
We're grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.
The list of all we're grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!

Being Myself Is A Big Deal


Forecast says it's going to snow tomorrow,
So I shall cherish my time today,
I don't want to be reminded any sorrow
of what happened or will occur anyway,
The will to be free is tense,
The reasons don't have to make any sense,
I wish to stay calm and be real,
Being myself is a big deal.
I shall try my best to be current,
nothing will stop me from valuing my present.

October Spirits


October Is Disability, Diversity, Mental Health Awareness Month,
Help people learn about how to avoid the sadness by handing out information
to newly married or expecting couples, or go to places 
where you can meet disabled individuals and 
know what they think or do to fulfill their life...
Also, organize concerts, seminars, or book readings to 
relevant groups to 
show your love and knowledge in these issues...
Happy October!

Autumn Evening by Alice Anne Gordon

Leaves deepen to orange ember
as twilight comes,
sky drifts to smother the day,
swaddling memories in soft pink clouds.
Neon lights flicker, illuminating
windless trees, standing crooked.
Evening song edges towards the night.

Happy Father's Day Ahead! Smiles! :)


Growing up with a father is sweet,
I like the memories of being a child,
given permission to choose my dress,
and was encouraged to read, write, and
do whatever I wish to be myself, and
achieve my goals...My father is a role
model to many other fathers, bless him.
Happy Father's day ahead!
