dVerse — OLN — Gone

Gone Gazing out, a stripped landscape gazes back. Houseplants, relieved, grateful to be in, still grieve. Garrulous jays, glass-muted, grouse at feeders fit for wrens. Ghosts of gatherings past haunt grey day; misted memories. https://youtu.be/Lzlc0-Mx0sk image:  "November First," by Andrew Wyeth Sanaa is today's host for Open Link Night Live.
