November 8 Election


Last shred of power

an “X” recorded with care

determines the race.


In response to Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge #122: power & race. Being a Canadian, seeing this prompt I thought “I think I’ll hibernate and wait for the results”.  However I couldn’t look away. My thoughts are with you my southern friends.




Autumn memories


Color on sidewalks

Blazing leaves toasting the sky

Remind me of home

Ah! a moment of nostalgia.  I live only a few hundred kilometers away from my former adult home (Toronto) and my childhood home (Ottawa), but the trees are different here—mostly evergreens—not the leafy types that display red, orange, and yellow in the fall.   I do miss walking out the door and seeing autumn colors.  Here I am surrounded by green and brown spruce—no colors unless I go for a drive on the highway where my eyes can feast on blazing landscapes.
