Snowflakes

Winter butterflies
Flutter in an evening sky
Of soft velvet black
Their icy wings glistening
In the pale light of the moon

Frozen Fragments

.


                   as days get shorter
                   yuletide's chill fills the air
                   inside and outside
                   wearing just all her absence
                   through frozen fragments of hours

Piercing Rays

.






                                           piercing the leafage
                                           kaleidoscopic sun rays
                                           on forest old path
                                             the snow shines in cold silence
                                             as spring has not feathers yet

Visions of Autumn

Scarecrow’s tattered clothes
Clever birds are never fooled
Sit defiantly
Arms of hay hold heckling birds
Eating the last grains of corn
 
Nature’s curtain falls
Vibrant leaves make no encore
Tumble to damp soil
Yellows and reds turn to brown
Trees’ skeletal limbs shudder
 
Fall’s first kiss of frost
Invades farmer’s pumpkin patch
Hardy fruit withstands
Trick-or-treaters carve faces
Jack-o-lanterns light doorsteps

NEW YEAR

NEW YEAR

snow is melted
the ruin that is winter
overwhelms my eye
beneath the sun trees stand
like crowds of ragged beggars

the once beautiful
is denied all memory
of where it has gone
the icy house top drippings
ping the head    stark reminder

those cold months ahead
but i’ll wait out the next snow
the white blanket fall
marvel the icy branches
wish happy new year to all

A Change of Seasons

Persuaded by time, clothed in rust, night reveals a lonely Halloween... Illusions of my childhood drift away with falling leaves

Lethal Sticks

Catapulting ice falling from my roofs gutters dangerous to all. Don’t walk or stand beneath it; or you may end up impaled!

Angel Kisses





Snowflakes so silently fall

Like Angel kisses

Winters breath upon my face

Their departure traced

AUTUMNAL GRACE

potpourri of wreaths 
   splatter night rhinestones with aisles 
      of gold cashmere talc,
         stairways of herons ascend
   *        sky flooding autumn light bulbs 

                            

          heaven drips of earth's 
             elegance, drops of fern boughs
                 collect hands calmly
                    chiming psalms of  fall's remains  *
                        a mantle bathed by wet stars

Spring Affair

her face growing old
lines of her eyes, ancient trees.
young lovers are  lost
her branches bend with spring tears.
young rain seeps deep in the wood.

Bears {Tanka}

Winter snows recede
Warmer days do their part
Rivers start to swell
Awakened by natures clock
Hibernating bears emerge

Your Absence

Otoño / Autumn / Herbst

El bosque está tranquilo
En esa lúz silenciosa de mañana
Descansadas las ojas 

El otoño se pone su nuevo vestido
En una fiesta imensa de colores 

---------------------------------------

Forest in peacful rest
In this quiet morning light
Leaves are tired

Autum arises newly dressed
In a feast of living colours

---------------------------------------


Wald  in friedlicher Ruhe
In diesem stillen Morgenlicht
Die Blätter sind müde

Herbst  ersteht in neuem Kleid
Im Fest lebendiger Farben

Autumn Falls

The air chills slightly ¬ Leaves whistle in careful touch Whilst the nights draw in ~ Blued skies mingle against greys Autumn is calling the tune ~~~ Greenery now turns ¬ Her vibrantly yesterdays In chameleon change ~ Richness of colours now flow Blends of the fall so grace us ~~~ Cobalt laden skies ¬ Amidst the ebony dark Impending storms close ~ The passing of Summer, stark What we lose today, returns ~~~

Priceless..art in my outdoor gallery

summer harvest sweet

summer harvest sweet
plump fruit ready for picking
a cornucopia treat
one would be wise to know how
quickly ripeness turns to rot


Details | Tanka | |

Fall

old leaves are falling
sailing, reluctant, kiss death
the fragile air breaks 
healing hearts are letting go
love letters, clutched until now

Flowers Fading Fast

A rose is a rose.
A lily is a lily.
Flowers fading fast
beneath the sweltering sun
on a blazing Summer day.

APRIL

APRIL

she is rosy cheeked and chill
breath quite treacherous
fickle april of my dreams
fondest promise unfulfilled

Summer Vacation


summer's warmth returns
the wet sand between our toes
coconut lotion
children running and playing
our hearts and souls at rest...


Details | Tanka | |

in time

budgies chatter

and canaries sing

voices raised

welcoming Spring

while daffodils sway in time

A Walk With You

A walk in the woods...
The sun shines through the tree leaves...
My time with You, Lord...
Under trees, orange and yellow...
With the fresh cool breeze of fall...

Winters warmth



oh precious Winter

finding warmth within the cold 

a cozy fire born

the chills from day melt away

embers rise i shut my eyes...

It's Winter

Frozen lake-water, Damp eyelids,misty breath, Foggy-streets' dim lights, Silvery-green valleys, Leafless trees,concrete boughs.

THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN

THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN

it started out white
but the late snow was weeks old.
results were a fright –
those red pepper lips, corn teeth,
tomato ketchup eyes,

the tire-track forehead,
the oil and grit in his cheeks –
my roadside snowman.
and those dried apricot ears
been in the pantry for years

abominable! –
chest a tattered cardboard box, 
gloves were threadbare sox
on discarded broomstick arms –
my roadside snowman

save demise for last –
the tall, wide-brimmed plastic hat
was what did him in.
when the morning sun came out 
just everything went flat

what a sorry sight
that vegetable salad
in a muddy drool,
with young springtime’s merry sun
the ruin of late winter’s fun
