 Haiku 16

shades of autumn

footpaths glittered with gold

hints of heaven


In addition, my short ekphrastic Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Russell poem is posted at the Barn Door today. Your comments there are much appreciated. Thank you for reading.

note: both poems, now modified, first appeared in 2012.

Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Russell


Mr. And Mrs. Thomas Russell 
by Lori Lipsky

~oil on canvas, Charles Peale (1741-1827)
displayed at the Chazen Museum, Madison, WI

Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Russell
moved to Wisconsin from out East
over a century ago, but find themselves
still together and happy
after all these years
