Today, and the Christmas cactus is beginning to bloom once again.

The picture is courtesy of Karen’s WhimsyI chose this one, in honor of all the wonderful photos I see of birds on many of your blogs.

And I love this picture, also from the Christmas Holly selection at Karen’s Whimsy.

Gentle Fall Day

gentle fall day
with blue skies
and more colors
changing

we keep windows
open for as long
as we can

and there is
new green on
Christmas cactus
leaves

seagulls rest
on the water
and no one
bothers them

Skeins of geese flying
To our neighbor Canada
A brand new chapter…
Books arriving in the mail
Songs of beauty and courage
