Poetry Friday - Surprise Gift

            Cheriee at her blog, Library Matters, hosts today on Poetry Friday. She's been sharing fascinating poem memories these past weeks (months?) and last week wrote that she was done, now ready to revise. She's sharing a poet from her country, Canada, whose books look and sound great. We don't get many books out of Canada here, but some. I will look for these! Thanks, Cheriee!











            Yes, I wrote about autumn, but I didn't intend to until I walked outside this week, near my old and large cottonwood and saw this! Beautiful things happen in this season. I see so many "images" that I love, like busy spiders, knowing that they have much to do before their goodbyes, too. Happy Autumn however it's happening in your neighborhood.
