Haiku52:
Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats.

Caroline:

Shop the Story

such a funny phrase,
"daylight savings"—saving what?
dark by 4 PM.

Sam:

To fall back doesn’t
mean you will lose your balance,
but that you gain time.

If you cut a foot
Off the end of a blanket
And then sew it on

To the other end
The blanket is not longer
Leave the clocks alone

YES.

longer day only
'cuz kid wakes up earlier
but has same bedtime

I've noticed something
About falling back in fall
More sleep is better

Thick body-mind clouds
residual from nighttime abundance
a sliver clearer for the hour gain

Sun light when I wake
Makes me happy in Autumn
I love standard time

i crave standard time
early darkness and crisp air
promote nesting mode
