blue skies of autumn

blue skies of autumn
on this illusion of wings
souls soar
above and beyond,
the walls

within and without

autumn rain

autumn rain ~

washed afresh 
the fresh leaves 
rise against the skies,
how bracing! how easing...


reconnecting with 
the words that once 
echoed in my silence, 
here, I hear the sound 
of violets break open

another life

a life ends 
burning to ashes -
what justice can words do, 
the pen 
rests on a blank page, 
another life 
begins elsewhere

autumn moon

autumn moon
turning the other way
evening star

yet, as if time never was 
autumn moon

the times we spoke, 
the things we spoke 
all forgotten 
autumn moon

autumn breeze

autumn breeze ~
leaves let go
a melody

in this evening's hush

in this evening's hush 
the crescent moon too, 
a luminous bird 
set on flight, 
into the darker skies

Idle questions

idle questions rumble 
through the clouds gathering 
at sunset ~ beneath, 
the ground resounding 
with the laughter of children
