Skylight in autumnal ceiling,

shingles flake, a graceful peeling;

flecks that twirl to floor below

like golden flakes of autumn snow.


This is one ‘renovation reality’ that none of us need worry about! Β

    Your words are pure magic, Melody–I LOVE this!!

    • melodylowes says:

      (That’s the ‘good’ kind of magic, right?) πŸ™‚ Thank you so much, my friend.

      • Caddo Veil says:

        I think “pure” qualifies as “good”.

      • melodylowes says:

        πŸ™‚ What are you working on writing wise these days?

      • Caddo Veil says:

        The usual–poems and more poems, plus weekly Share Your World. Or were you asking about topics? I wasn’t able to write this weekend, so am scrambling tonight–not sure I like what’s scheduled for tomorrow–maybe I’m just tired. I have some “good stuff” coming up, so maybe I should just switch the dates. And I need food.

      • melodylowes says:

        Ah, yes – food makes the world go round. And poets happy – even if it is a much-substituted ingredient meal! πŸ˜€ Doesn’t it make a difference if there is a break in routine? *sigh* I sure have’t had the time “I would like to check out everyone’s blogs the past few days – I’ll get to them when I get to them, I guess!

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Oh Melody, I’m so slow tonight–it took me 3 reads to get the “substituted ingred” comment!! Good grief, I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to a “new day” in the morning. This has been a rare one–where every move I’ve made was off, significantly, and there might have been disastrous consequences (no melodrama, I’m serious). Anyway, I’m heating up the casserole I “created” yesterday–Italian Chicken Sausage, zucchini, onion, stuffing mix, cream of chick soup and some cheese and 3 eggs. It’s actually good–my neighbor loved it, ‘course he hadn’t eaten all day… He was up here most of the weekend, it seemed, so that interrupted my LIFE (writing, etc)–but I’ve been trying to be a “LIGHT” for him, so I’m hoping my sacrifice will have an eternal payoff. But it’s exhausting for sure.

      • melodylowes says:

        That’s because it is a spiritual output! I have had a day of cloudiness – tomorrow will be different! πŸ™‚

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Cloudy, as in lack of clear inner vision? Sending up a prayer for “Sonshine”!

      • melodylowes says:

        No – cloudy as in addle-brained! πŸ™‚ Here’s to clear inner vision for the morrow!

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Yeah, there’s a lot of that going around (“slow”, addle-brained)! Sending you a hug–I have extras!!

      • melodylowes says:

        Hugs are in short supply in these parts – I’ll take it! πŸ™‚

  2. RoSy says:

    I visualized this & it looks beautiful!

  3. Debbie says:

    What a beautiful shot, looking up at those white trunks, yellowing leaves and blue sky. Your poem then added to the wonder. This kind of snow I’m okay with! πŸ™‚ God bless you!

  4. Loved the image you convey it takes me back to long walks through the forest with my favorite dog .
