Stories

Thieving October,
how did you miss the stories
in the old clay pot?

  1. Lovely poem and image. October has stolen summer here, quickly without warning. Like a thief!

  2. Stories have their power no matter what the season. Nothing can steal that away.

  3. Beverly Crawford

    Sounds like a revisit to the clay pot is required. Can’t leave stories untold!

  4. Nice one!

    Much💜love

  5. Throw away the gold and fill it with feathers so it will be easier to carry?
    Fun, evocative Haiku/Senryū read for me. Out to play in our ditch, I found
    an old crock someone had thrown away. I still have it, a treasure even
    if it is cracked.

    • p.s. Most of our travel was done during a six week summer break, I would
      teach the first semester. But now being retired we find October is easier on
      the budget. And generally better weather, it snowed in Russia a couple of days.

    October does seem to just walk in and shut the door. Spring and summer slide in a bit gradually. But not October.

  8. Not sure my comment posted successfully. I said that it’s a beautiful clay pot, and that I’m sure the stories were left for you to find and share. 🙂

  9. October is a thief but she leaves behind beautiful empty spaces. I LOVE stories in a clay pot – makes me want to sit next to it and listen closely.

  10. I like the contrast in your poem, the thought of October taking something away but still leaving more for us to find. When the leaves are gone, we pay attention to the soil and the branches… and clay pot tales, too, I suppose.

  11. I agree with Ms. Magaly … October giveth and October taketh away. Cheers.
