A Poem: November Low and High Kus

by

comment

The chrysanthemums

color still stands out amid

the dried, drooped, and done.

~ ~ ~

A November wind

has thin bare branches scratching

at the low gray sky.

~ ~ ~

Canadian geese

form zigzag Vs in the sky,

winged calligraphy.

~ ~ ~

That calling from geese

outside my window on high,

I long to follow.

~ ~ ~

The dark comes early

before I am quite ready

to be so quiet.

    Even as things begin to return to normal post pandemic peak, this summer's craft beverage festivals in the Hudson Valley will look very different than past years, if they are event happening at all. While the most conservative organizers have straight up cancelled their events, some are taking their festivals online, and yet others are hoping increased safety precautions will make an in-person event viable.
