abuse, autumn, death, deep,
Hear the whispers inside
Chanting from long ago
Echoes come and go
Losing time in a soft eternal glow
A beautiful and delicate autumn mountain scene
Dry blue eyes...
Where The Sycamore Grew
autumn, family, house, life,
The sun-yellow house seems smaller somehow,
regarding it now, with our time-worn eyes...
The street seems narrower, and the trees are taller..
Where once open fields spanned...
A child of four suffers recurring dreams,
disturbing parents and siblings with screams.
When she awoke, always sore in one knee;
next to a birthmark, it throbbed painfully.
FALL IN LOVE
autumn, love, nature,
F eeling enraptured, Autumn dances in the wind, then undresses.
A s bright robes fall to the ground, her passion paints the twilight skies.

NATURES WONDERFUL GARDEN
autumn, beauty, nature,
NATURE’S WONDERFUL GARDEN
Nature’s wonderful garden in display
display of autumn colours in array
array of beauty to share in delight
delight of birds in a picturesque sight.
Under the Stars
autumn, poetry, romance, stars,
In Strangler's Wood - tanka version
autumn, mystery, rain,
At a dead man’s throat
lies the rain drenched woolen scarf
that stifled his screams.
Cold Winds howl through decayed trees -
witnesses in the shadows.
autumn, october, sky, tree,
As halcyon summer days
Bucolic trees seen from
an autumn sky
Become a cynosure
The Guise Of The Blue Jay Skies
autumn, bird, blue, conflict,
F l y i n g
a sailing tailwind
in cerulean streams
through beams colored creamsicle -
are wings reflective of turquoise truth
Falling Like Leaves
Oh, how sweet Autumn air collars my heart
The vapor of leaves, chill summer reprieves
The Universe of You
autumn, beautiful, love, planet,
I have never seen a flower blush when I took it's hue
and held it there a prisoner captive to my view.
I have always heard the...
The Old Oak Tree
autumn, life, spring, summer,
Oh I am but a simple leaf
Seeing Autumn's oak adorn
autumn, birth, death, life,
Painting sky before I was born,
Draping my grave in leaf and acorn.

Winds of Autumn
life, lost, autumn, lost,
I called to the winds of autumn
As they wrapped up the dying year;
"Oh stay for a moment and tell me
Of answers I need to hear".
And Sweet Is Her Demise
autumn, death, summer,
In primrose twilight, summer is still near.
She whispers in my ear; I hear her in
the one lone owl that hoots to only me.
I wake to...
Blow sweet Breeze
autumn, love, nature,
With the turning of the green
the fevered hues engulf my soul
rich radiant reds glistening in the sun
as my heart gleams with memories
of the solemn words...
It rained all night. The day rose dripping grey.
The cool air, welcome after summer’s heat
Smelled finally like fall. The first red flames
Of sumac bushes shone...
autumn, beach, husband, love,
Dark honey tanned skin glistens
From the moisture of humidity.
The ladies flirt shamelessly with
You, but your eyes...
Hot cider dreams
autumn, beauty, love,
Fall glides in on the wings
of migrating monarchs,
stained glass visions seeking respite
from a tedious journey
signaling a change in our surroundings
Blushing, the complexion of November
autumn, animals, cowboy-western, death, loss,
The day Will Shepard shot my dog
His barn burned to the soil;
The flames licked at the Autumn sky,
The smoke as black as oil.
I dropped the...
autumn, caregiving, friendship, hope, introspection,
An ancient river, centuries-old shops and restaurants steeped in a 2000-year history and
culture set the scene. The ambiance seemed divinely contrived to facilitate the...
Here, Again: The Autumn Equinox
autumn, england, myth, nature,
Written for the Avebury Gorsedd, 24th September 2016
I wish you well...
I’m here, again…
Come riding in, upon the western wave
My hair all wove with...
Lilah of the Lilacs
autumn, lost love,
Like violets were her eyes when first I spied
the lady with a sweet child’s face who peeked
at me from bushes that she stood beside,
The gilded leaves of autumn sigh
When fleeting storm said goodbye
The darkened sky detected a lie
Besting clouds her thoughts host
Drenching doubts that block riposte.
As the cobalt sky and ocean meet
Sol To Soul
autumn, flower, light, nature,
G O L D E N
of the solar throne
your far-away fire reigns immortal -
blossom wild beauty of chrysanthemum skies
hold me in the unfolding glory...
