Poetry Autumn Mourning

green leaves fall in November all at once instead of autumn's colorful yellows: climate change

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Today in my Twitter feed a duo of friends responded to each other in Sunday Haiku, reflecting on the beauty of autumn’s splendor. But I again was taken by our autumn — eighty degree weather fooling autumn into leaving the leaves green so with the freeze in November the still green leaves froze and broke off all at once, tumbling in a mass of green upon the sidewalks, ground, and bushes, a reminder that climate change is ongoing. I wrote about this yesterday too, When Autumn Forgot. And, again, a reminder that our seasons in the western United States have changed to winter, spring, and fire. This year’s autumn supports that sad change.

Mourning Seasons

Thoughts swirl in mourning
Autumn’s leaving, now seasons
Are winter, spring, fire

November Doodle for Poetry

Today I decided to add to yesterday’s autumn leaves, by adding in the reflection and color of the fiery autumn and wildfire sunsets to accompany the little haiku.

Daily Create November Poetry

Prompt: #clmooc #DS106  @ds106dc   #tdc3957 Blackout Poetry

So, for Blackout Poetry, I decided to acknowledge the November victory of democracy and freedom, in the fight for justice and liberty of everyone’s civil rights — including women’s right to choose their futures.

Rage, division, and lies lost on November 8m 2022. And we will be able to continue to vote and keep it that way– protecting all of us from the onslaught of white male supremacy and Christian [not] Nationalism.

We still have ways to go, but America voted for justice and democracy and liberty for all.

We Are United in Liberty and Justice

We the People
in Justice
Blessings of Liberty to


The poetry from blacked out words — blackout poetry– which I created in my Notes and Photo app on my iPhone.

Black out Poetry; We Are United in Liberty and Justice; Preamble of the Constitution blacked out for poetry: We the People, in Justice, provide Blessings of Liberty to Posterity, United. 11-08-2022

In case you don’t recognize the blacked out text, it is the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America

And we are united in justice for our children’s future.
