the light shines on

ring out the old
ring in the new
shining well

may peace prevail
may we gather joyfully together freely
may we care for each other
may our love be eternal

sunrise before solstice

lucky enough to be up before daybreak
on a day off
to see the sun rise for an instant
before going behind clouds for the day.

clouds of autumn

autumnal sunset

before sunset, the high up clouds showed frost to come 
but for now,
in that brief moment when the air was orange,
they are like an underwater dance of color

sea of clouds

autumn now


summer challenges
now past, orange everywhere.
Snow will come, then spring.

I do believe I will miss the somnambulance of this deep and endless snow.
Though I long for barefoot and flowers,
the quiet of the frozen landscape is eternal and timeless.

season of peaches


peachy perfect

this season when the leaves color and fall
has been filled with peaches.

Now only a couple of late roses bloom
and the last of the black eyed Suzys fade.
There are a few flowers and fruits as spots of color, but mostly the plants hang their brown and dried seed heads as the trees slowly change and drop each leaf one by one .

Autumn envelopes us with her sharp angled light
of late afternoons and shorter days and coldness.

Now the sun shines directly from the west
into the cobwebs throughout the house.

Shorts and long sleeves and shawls and socks.

Finally some rain and today all is shrouded in a cloud.
A wistfulness bears hard on me and I dream of spring as I walk over wet leaves.
