Hips, Haws, And Harrumphs


The hips and haws signal

Summer’s gone

Fall and early winter are in play

We sleep now


As Persephone returns to the Underworld

Prepare yourself

Take heart

Soon enough it’s spring

Life returns

It never leaves


What the cycle brings



Cozy by the hearth

Bundle up stay warm

Watch safe from a window

Should winter early storm

Enjoy one final harvest

Welcome early frost

There’s warmth underneath

Where foliage sleeps

The heart it has no bounds

Listen to the silent snow

Watch flakes swirl around


“The prompt this week is:


… the hips and haws signal …”
