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.

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.

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

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