men washing dishes –

an early alarm

ends her Thanksgiving dream


               [Nov. 24, 2005]







first snow —

an entire city

learning to drive









Thanksgiving snow storm –

a seatbelt protects each 

steaming pie



[Nov. 23, 2005]









a wintry mix

at the bedroom window

big wet ones



[Nov. 22, 2005]    












home for Thanksgiving —

in my old bed

in the guest room


[Nov. 21, 2005]







smells like Thanksgiving —

two dads smoke cigars

behind the garage



            [Nov. 20, 2005]







full morning moon —

the working girl’s

gauzy blouse








Thanksgiving rush —

not as late

as that flock of geese










her lawyer listed

under “Martial Law”




 [Nov. 19, 2005]











casual Friday

the senior partner

unbuttons his vest


    [Nov. 18, 2005]







Indian Summer —

a squirrel tips over 

the bag of rock salt

[Nov. 16, 2005]






she’ll never

own a cell phone!

she borrows mine



       [Nov. 15, 2005]







gone a week —

only the librarian

says “i missed you”


   [Nov. 15, 2005]










heading home —  

one hawk

floats over the Beltway












entering New York:

another autumn hill

turns my head












from daylight to dark —

a full moon

out my windshield











gone a week —

quick peek to see

the river’s still there











unloading the car —

the moon

followed me home



 [Nov. 14, 2005]










a lovely river

but not

my river



[Nov. 12, 2005]











the elm died

and the tulip tree grew —

between visits




              [Nov. 11, 2005]















“you look so good” 

on their counter, too,










nearly-full moon

the walk to the market 

got a lot steeper



[Nov. 9, 2005]










the senior partner

has a senior minute









mid-argument –

opposing counsel crosses

her legs


[Nov. 9, 2005]










autumn highway —

distracted by

past-peak beauty








back in town —

three wrong turns

in a row


[Nov. 8, 2005]











a once-familiar route —

they’ve never seen my baldspot 

                  [Nov. 7, 2005]  









Guy Fawkes Night —

treacle better taste better

than it sounds


      [Nov. 6, 2005]








same moon

same clock tower –



                     [Nov. 5, 2005]






bad news

from the doctor —

voices through the wall












Day of the Dead —

the anorexic

looks envious

[Nov. 4, 2005]





autumn wedding

sweeping up brown and yellow



[Nov. 3, 2005]


special delivery –

a smile from

the pregnant mailman



                             [Nov. 2, 2005]





just enough:

one wheelbarrow

two sisters, three pumpkins










November 1st —

All Sales Day

in the candy aisle







under her sheet –

the sleepy ghost

hides a Snickers bar



    [Nov. 1, 2005]
