Dark Clouds of Fall





The dark clouds rolled in with splashes of chilly rain. All part of New England Fall, where the frost is already on the pumpkin. I snatched a few hours away from parent care, stale bread, and the blaring television to create this image in my quiet hotel room. I also got to see a longtime friend who moved far away to New Hampshire, where I crossed the border into a clutter of political signs. I am trying to be charming.

That's a beautiful image, a picture of something I've tried to describe in words a thousand times, and never quite managed to convey.

Also, I like this sentence: "I am trying to be charming." It's charming in itself.

Sometimes I am very determined to be charming too. I think of this song...
