    flamboyant
    then fades, crisps, drops.
    Rake.

    with them as they

  14. A few Lanternes —
    Tea
    Friend sips
    Honeyed cups
    Gold infused brew
    Time

    Stars
    Pinholes
    Magic sights
    Twinkling,sprinkling
    Dreams

    Sun
    Crispy
    Shrinking days
    Pumkined shades breathe
    Treats

    Tis the season of Diwali- the Indian Festival of Lights
    Bonds
    Shining
    Childhood lights
    Illuminate
    Me

    SKY SHOW

    Clouds
    Gather
    Playfully
    In sky lots
    Blue

    Shapes
    Appear
    In sizes
    Huge as Macy’s
    Floats

    White
    Fluffy
    Animals
    parade above
    Us

    Sun
    Spotlights
    Their antics
    Ever changing
    Zoo

    Peace:
    quiet
    set amidst
    cacophony’s
    pleas.

  24. Desperation

    Drained—
    My brain
    stalls mid-thought
    due to lack of
    Sleep.

    No Road Map Necessary

    if
    I’m lost
    in a book,
    I know my way
    home.

    Her
    bare foot
    touching his,
    saying yes to
    love.

  29. Nurit Israeli on said:

    Fall
    Leaves are
    Letting go,
    but I hold on −
    Still.

  30. Nurit Israeli on said:

    Love
    is real,
    even when
    it’s not what you
    think.

  31. Nurit Israeli on said:

    My
    watch’s hands
    won’t stand still,
    running nowhere
    fast.

  32. Nurit Israeli on said:

    Still
    craving
    directions:
    what is the best
    way?

  33. Nurit Israeli on said:

    No,
    you can’t
    go back home:
    what is gone is
    gone.

  34. Past
    Starkly
    Imprinted
    Bright memories
    Gone
