Fall Weather Dreams

Along a village street in fall weather dreams

we float together by the light of a harvest moon

Halos in the fog show us the way

down a path we hope no one else knows

beneath a forest ready to sleep

The narrow way into something familiar

like the air is drawing it out of us

Leaf swirled lanes where windows are sleeping

seem to whisper a story to us

something almost strange, like a dream

At the end of this path we will come to it

a stream at the foot of the mountain like a vein

a forgotten place far beyond even us

and we’ll lay on our backs and imagine

what might be there, just above the treetops

Gonna have to give myself a haircut soon.

    This is my fave line, though you know I always love each word of every post: “Halos in the fog show us the way”. Interesting that you mention cutting your hair…I did my own a few days ago, nothing fancy, just whacked off some length that was driving me nuts 🙂

        It’s amazing what we can do if there’s no other option 🙂 I’m trying to get up courage to finish my About page–and post my real photo…with new cut 😉

        I do think it’s a more providential time now, than it might have been. At least we have Internet resource–imagine the “olden days”, pioneers didn’t stand a chance when plagues came calling… Very best regards to you, Mitchel 🙂
