Orange Confection

Orange confection invites the vulnerable 
To an autumn evening with a dinner table 
The hor d'oeuvre shirks the pecan pie
Temptation couldn't agree with deny
Enjoyment of pumpkin spice delight
I may fall in love tonight...
with everything orange... 

Happy Thanksgiving !  ~pattyb 


In the hourglass of winter's grace
the days are wrapped in traipse
It seethes fatigue to the child within 

longing for a place- 
in time-
that belongs to them.. 
As the year of bittersweet traipse 
sun dances into another year, stagnant 
Perseverance is not my trait-
