...after the photograph by Chandler Anderson

Rain slicked pavement
in a kaleidoscope
of colour.

safely behind us...
Dia de los Muertos
just around the corner

New England
full with autumn's promise
Thanksgiving looming.

Time to catch up
with family and loved ones,

add extra leaves
to the dining room table–
toast the dwindling days
of 2023.

Steel yourself for Black Friday
finish up the Christmas shopping
you began last summer.

Kick off your shoes
and be thankful
you made it to one more
holiday celebration.
