Today Irene at Live Your Poem is hosting us in the Poetry Friday community. And she's sharing a great opportunity that will be available in 2022.
And she has a gorgeous autumn poem. I love this line: "how time eats daylight." It's a great mystery.
I've been attempting to be intentional in writing a haiku each day in response to the #inktober prompt. October 6 was "spirits" and October 7 is "fan".

It is a sign of luck to catch a leaf as it falls.
Great minds think alike, Jone! I'm doing a poem a day in October as well (from a different list of prompts). I love these haiku, especially the one about the gingko. One of my favorite sights in fall is the bright gold of gingko leaves - like they're making up for the sun that's gone away (it's often grey and foggy where I live in autumn). Thanks for sharing these today!

Jone, these are wonderful! So full of autumn spirit... and a Hunter's Moon, too. You're always doing something creative. Love it. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you, Irene. I am having fun and getting back into a routine.

I love reading that it brings good luck to catch one of those ginko biloba leaves, Jone, & your two Inktober poems - 'wrap the hunter's moon' is a wonderful way to show that special night.

Thanks, Linda. I love using the words 'hunter's moon'.

I love these and the drawings with them. I particularly like the first. The third line "night spirits" seems perfect.

Thanks, Janice. I am having great fun creating.

Falling leaves always makes me happy.

Lovely, Jone, to see your sketches and wonderful haiku. Gingko is such a gorgeous plant--happy you featured it :>)

Thank you, Laura. I love their leaves.

Gingkoes are my very favorite trees. I'll do my best to catch a leaf or two when then go gold in a few weeks!

Thanks, Mary Lee. They are starting here because of the sever drought, which is sad.

Thank you for being a 'fan'.

Oh I have been enjoying seeing your posts, Jone. These are delightful and how you are weaving in all of your sketching and haiku. Those leaves, love and the idea of the cirrus clouds wrapping the Hunter's moon. You inspire me to do this and putting it into my notebook of poetry prompt ideas! Thank you, Jone.

Thank you, Janet. It's a good thing to be back in a routine.

Jone, thanks for the note on good luck. I did not know that fact. The 2nd haiku drawing is so whimsical.

Thank you Carol.

I too love gingkoes, like other here! I didn't know they were lucky when you catch one. You have inspired me to write a poem a day in October as well, using the Inktober prompts.

Thank you, Denise, I feel good about writing each day. It was the push I needed.
