5 Things About October

Mushtaq tagged me for "5 Random Things". My collection isn't very random, but there it is.

I love October wind
scattering gold in front
of a grey storm-wall. I love Ray Bradbury
who invented October (before him
it was just another page on the calendar),
and I love the candles
in the jack-o-lantern hearts
of my city. I love the stained-glass
leaves on the Tartar maples.
I love the smell of windfall apples
on the sidewalk. Allah,
how beautiful is Thy creation.

Let's hear from...
Rafael
Mike
Rethabile

Y'all don't have to do it in poetry...

Collection available! Knocking from Inside
