this season

This is the jolly season
Of fallen leaves
Rains mulching~
Hands joined
For thanksgiving~
Exuberant fellow shoppers elbowing
Madly rushing, covetous eyes, glistening

Friendly frequenting squirrel
Still comes a-calling
And as is my wont
I madly rush to capture
This moment for posterity
It still scampers way, daintily
Yet I cling to hope saluting
Leaves still teetering
On umber branches

Fatty in red suit
Shall “sleigh” in
With wishes weighed
Pocketful of miracles
Made to happen
And hope and wonder
Filled childish eyes
Shall never cease
Painting is by Norman Rockwell
