Descent: Haiku



Rapidly tumbling
to a rhythm of their own.
Yearly pilgrimage.


Ah, I do love fall. Particularly when the woolly boots come out of hiding and the pumpkins spring up everywhere. And the furnace kicks on in the morning, thank goodness.


Do read of the descents of the poets who call One Single Impression their home-away-from-home.

Hi patois!
Haven't visited in awhile, been on summer hiatus...but NOW...now that the pilgrimage is in full swing...it's delightful to see you again! I love your 'masthead' photo. Those kids of yours are sure growing fast. And well!

Happy fall, descent, to you and yours!
