In my part of the world it is fall and dreams of spring and flowers
comes in the catalogs that arrive in the mail as soon as the harvest is over.
 .
.
winter dreams of warmth
planting new seeds and seedlings
spring full moon promise  
.
.
As winter goes on, the dreams become more vivid ~ seed orders go out~
seed packets arrive with photos of the promise of things to come with
the warming of the earth.
.
.
Warming of the earth
breezes whisper time is near 
dream of planting seeds
 .
.
Can you hear the whippoorwills, see the robins celebrating the fresh
earth worms in the warming earth.
 .
.
new life celebrates
birds return,  seeds are sprouting
earth springing forth life
lilac bush outside  window
mocking birds wake me early
.

Across from my house is a haunted school house. This is the view from my front door.

.

Yup, a coffin for sure !

.

Good grief ! I shudda minded my own business !

.

Full moon, super storm
tide so high it spilled the road
Creepy start to night
.
Across the door yard
a coffin spied on the grass
creepy to the max
.
Crept across door yard
shivering in my muck boots
eery sounds filled air
.
Ran back across street
what to my wide open eyes
a creepy hand spied
.
Creepy sight for sure
shudda known better, not looked
Sleep now ? Don’t think so !
