  1. Not sure I’m doing this, but the tiny print said to post our poem in the comments…. Here is mine :).

    Chanah L. Wizenberg

    Chilled crisp air
    carrying the sweet scent
    of apple trees in bloom.

    I walk through
    the dried leaves
    delighting in their crunch
    beneath my feet.

    I watch the leaves fall
    from their trees
    delighted by
    the bright colors.
    The reds, oranges,
    and yellows.

    In life and in death,
    nature’s remarkable

    Taking a deep breath.
    A good long sniff,
    my nostrils fill with the
    chilled scent of decayed

    I can’t help it.
    I love that smell.
    Rich, robust and
    somehow, life-affirming.

  3. No matter results
    I will still step forth each day
    with my head held high
    results are really about
    how I act in my own life
    I just hope my smile
    is written on my face
    and natural to my soul
