My son showed up for dinner last night
with a bottle of Scotch and a box of Godiva chocolates
in hand. Glory be!
Heavy rain today, and I had wanted to stand on the banks
of a river this afternoon, in full sunlight.
This glorious extended autumn.
Instead we went to a movie, and on the way home
the late-breaking sun lit up every tree
blazing against the dark clouds of all day.
Not quite as good as a river, but consolation.
