A Book by the Brook – Cricket in the Thicket

Finds tongues in trees, books in running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.

— William Shakespeare

Autumnal treat

Speaking of gilded tomes, I read the Apprentice Witch by James Nicol, and it was delicious! Now I’m in the middle of Black Witch, very suspenseful. I’m also reading Hunter, Elite and Apex by Mercedes Lackey. Yum, such fun! A little magic with my Halloween chocolate. And here is some magic from Lavender.

Lavender Moon: Artist, Poet and Lover of Nature

Autumn’s door closes as

Winter’s door opens to

A welcoming hearth of

Glowing embers: friends remembered.

Bessoms sweeping crispy leaves,

Birds feeding on filigree seeds.

Sipping warm mead, reading

Gilded tomes about far away homes,

goblins, gnomes, fairies and

Treasure troves.
