Nov 9, 2008

The day started with a November drizzle and I took to cleaning the house.

My daughters followed me from room to room, taking out what I put back. By lunch there was color in the rain and by mid-afternoon, sunlight drenched the roadways. I pulled some weeds from the aloe that I brought in. I left the door open.

even
inside my house the cold leaves cling
to one another

I find a wooden bowl that I have put on a top shelf, having hidden it from mice.

forgotten
wooden bowl. but still one
good apple

I have to work again tomorrow. I wonder if there will be snow on Moosilauke.
