A Poem, A Picture, A Celebration of World Food Day

Thursday, October 1st, 2020
October is my favorite “season” and here is a poem by my creative writing friend Stanley Fink and art by my artistic friend Judy Ringold.
Boiling hot Summer
Simmers down
Turn down the gas
September let it cool.
Orange and rust palette
Blots out tree green
Earth is marching softly
Away from the Sun
To winter encampment
Near the frigid Moonscape.
How will i maintain my orbit
Through these ice Mountains,
Blustering winds of disease
Social upheaval, disinformation,
Political loyalties ,
Families and friends
Stretched to the breaking point.
Will our collective orbit ever
Swing back to another Spring?
P.S. Today is World Vegetarian Day. Here’s a good link:
Today might be a good day to have a meatless meal to celebrate!
