Dark Days

Autumn started suddenly this year

Darkness is early; Sunrise rather late

Drought is, however, a growing fear

Rain is plenty now, yet, there’s debate



Surprisingly many daytime festivals

Take place this time of year

Harvest & neighborhood festivals

Endings & beginnings are fav themes here


Summer Day

As if we were in northern Italy

Again, the bright light astounds me

News report says, also birds change

As a result of climate change
