Autumn Contemplation

Fall approaches

Beckons the reclusive life

holed up in my house with

dogs, shut the doors,

draw the curtains.

Self-contained here in

our small home

shortened days

mysterious nights

Contemplate a move

up north Canada or Scotland

Shut out the damp with

a neat little fire

Wander new woods and bogs

walking stick in hand

two dogs racing ahead

Return home to our quiet

place and in the evening

patch ourselves together

into a living breathing quilt.
