Black Friday...

Black Friday

It’s happened again.
Autumn leaves first.
Then, the season’s first flurries.
As another year’s ghost hurries, hurries.

We shop til we drop
On this thing called Black Friday
As the low hanging fog engulfs London’s B.T. Tower.

We think about love
Like any Tom, Dick and Harry
Wondering what,
What the New Year carries, carries...

Fall bits...

Earlier today,
I went for a stroll.
Stumbled upon the fall;
Picked bits of it
And put them in a bowl!

A little Persian date!

A Little Persian Date...

All the wait is over,
So is the debate.

All those ‘will its’ won’t its’
Rushing through my head.

You could call it fortune,
Just perhaps pure fate.

For I have managed to charm
A little Persian date!

My heart is beating, beating.
Waiting for the fete!

But something rather tells me,
Despite the willing bait...

I won’t put
In my lifetime,
Its precious fruit...

On a plate!
