Thank God Fall’s here! Dec. 17, 2022

all those ideas

that hate the chilly weather

sneak inside and slink

into the put-away

things of summer

hide under my sandals

inside pockets of the short-sleeved

or burrow into the summer dust

knowing I’ll not clean for awhile

a whole hot season

of nuggets veiled in shadows

the crags of mountains

and old mouse holes

those inklings nearer now

the hunt closer to home

cold and tired of running

one concept clings

to an old used pen

hoping for a bit of heat

at least from the friction

as he’s being scratched

into a poem
