First blowy, cloudy fall day
fingers chilled on keyboard.
Push, wiggle, wiggle --
plug firmly seated in socket. Check.
Orange glowy Power light. Check.
Twist -- dial slides round a quarter turn.
Now, wait for it....yes!
Smell of warm dust!
“Tounk” thermostat switches off,
“tic, tic, tic” of momentary cooling,
“tounk” thermostat switches on.
Everything is a cycle.

Hunkering in the garden
sorting through dewy foliage
lifting red half-a-bite gems
to my dazzled tongue.
One kitten climbs my back
sits between my shoulder blades
purring in my ear, batting my pony tail,
another stalks the berry seeking hand
and pounces wildly on wet fingers.
