Poetry Friday: Maple Musings

Head over to Michelle's blog, Today's Little Ditty,
for this week's round-up of poetic goodness. 
Michelle is celebrating her latest TLD anthology. 
You 'll recognize many PF friends in its pages 
and can get your copy here.
Thanks, Michelle, for hosting this week!

And so November comes.
Early darkness.  Shorter days.
Overnight blazing red!
The window calls
Radiant ruby red leaves 
Wonder-struck, I pause.

Leaf littered path
Red leaves decorate foliage
Christmas tiptoes near.
- Ramona Behnke, November 2019


  1. A blaze of red brings good cheer, Ramona. Thank you for this peaceful I am waiting in a deadly line in the store.-keeping calm is key!

  2. All so beautiful, Ramona, but that final one is breath-taking, especially "Christmas tiptoes near."

  3. Such a beautiful story in haiku unfolding outside your window, Ramona. I'm so glad you captured it!

  4. Every word...stunning. What a gorgeous prompt and bit of nature for you to enjoy. You are fortunate!

  5. Your garden looks gorgeous -- no wonder you found inspiration there. I love the color in your poems and photos.

  6. So beautiful! Thanks for sharing your autumn!

  7. Lovely reds and winding poem, thanks Ramona!
