too much rain, so much gold

thunder and driving rains tonight.
Sheltie dog Kalie paces, hates this.
too much rain, too much water.
yet fall’s glory always shines
in hidden places

stitching is done for a dear friend

stitching still to do for
a personal goal

before the rains tonight i gathered marigolds
dry, bright and with purpose
and strung them as the rain
poured on

not new england’s finest fall
but oh, so beautiful even so.
