Tomorrow’s Just a Day Away

Not only my favorite song from the musical Annie, but oh so true. Tomorrow is just a day away and the day we get the keys to our brand-new house!! At almost 55 years old, we are getting our first brand-new house. We are loving our new town of Reno and the surrounding areas of Nevada. It is so different from the S.F. Bay Area. We have autumn here!! For the first time in a long time I’ve been inspired by the beauty of my surroundings to write a poem.

Bushes of fire and sage
Autumn leaves quivering
In a Zephyr wind
Winter white dusting
Of hills, russet and tanned
Emerald pines and golden grasses
Hawks on an updraft
Against a blue topaz sky

Burning Bush plant
