Fog and Fallen Leaves

fog and fallen leaves
along the country roads

shopping for writing
notebooks, pens, and
some CDs on sale

I can always enjoy
Silent Night in
another voice

memories of my mother
in church and lighting candles

winding home
ready to settle in
and write

how kind
all the people

sunshine for
each other today

light now
breaking through . . .
