The moon achoo rises silent and sniffle sneeze full.

Clouds ah ah ah drape her like thbluuee silk.

Sniff snuffle She teases us with ah ah ah her soft light.

Through the window achoo achoo she washes me pale.

Drip drip sniffle I wish I was dreaming achooo but instead

BLACHOWWWEEE I'm awake and can't even think ah ah ah.

Foggy Frosty Day

Rain, fog and a frosty morning bring so many interesting textures to light.

Can you guess what this is?  It is a macro shot!

Just love the leaves on the Chinese Elm.

I love spider webs, frosted spider webs rock it to another dimension!

Frosted raspberry leaves.

Frosted and purple!

Old iron wheel adds another dimension doesn't it?

That's a frosty seat to wake you up!

Tika enjoying the foggy pasture.

Last hurrah for the pansy's!

Sunflowers, spider webs and sigh...fall.

Still vibrant under a coating of ice and frost.

Foggy, frosty day - perfect for enjoying by the fire!

Poem: Conference Call

Phone tucked into my shoulder, conference call in my ear.
Listening, understanding, nodding my head to a computer screen.
Sounds of playing little boy and barking dogs.
Traffic going down the road, where do they all go anyway?

Phone on mute, little man with questions, dogs telling tales in the yard.
Listening, taking some notes, wondering when we'll get to the point.
Sounds of the birds, cows and horses.
Traffic going across the floor, another car chase my little man?

Phone battery starting to weaken, I hear the warning beeps.
Listening and wondering when I'll be able to sneak a handset change.
Sounds of people on the call - paper, pens, cars and families.
Traffic going across my screen - games, emails, messages and chats.
