Octobers’ day dance
With sunlit leaves in a flaw
-Fall just rattles on

I chose to use an obscure usage of the word “Flaw” referring to a passing storm

Dance With Me

Created for Susi Bocks Challenge


Here in this orchard
won’t you come to dance with me
and share my sweet fruit

Erotic spirits twirl round

Ends with final flash of green

Dawn of the north, spirit light

Back In The Morning – No Explanation

– Clarence Holm

Heard a gentle tapping on the glass patio door,
My cats have been prowling; now back to report their score.
Standing at the doorway, doing their nightly dance
A three-count, two-step; one paw left in a stance.

And from a different corner two other cats loudly yowl
A street lamp shines a spotlight and shadows start to fall.
Felines begin to polka, three dips including a twist
A howling country cat ballet, ending with Toms dismissed.

I slid open the squeaking door; shy cats vanish in the night,
Abandoning our Pete and Charlie before a hint of light.
As quickly as possible the pair enter scrambling to their bowl
The seemed a little shaken, the encounter had took its toll.

Sniffing at the kibbles, lapping a quick drink,
They both eye the hallway no need to think.
Naptime’s over yonder just atop the cover,
Sleeping till tomorrow or their nerves recover.
