Tranquil

Sunrise two days ago

the call of seagulls
slow swish as ocean kiss shore –
early morning stroll

Deception

 

a small garden snail
stretch out on hydrangea leaf
bird eyes its next meal
snail pulls back into his shell
the old dance of deception

Up, deep into the night
Cigarette smoke swirl and curl
She sits without moving
Studying the movement
Of the smoke in the dimly lit room
Scripting the events of the night
Maybe dawn will shed some light

Red Leaf

one red leaf
brought by autumn wind
sits alone
at my door others scattered
farther still I pause beguiled

Distilled from the Robert Frost (1874-1963) poem:

OCTOBER

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
To-morrow’s wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call.
To-morrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow,
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know;
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away;
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes’ sake, if they were all,
Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost—
For the grapes’ sake along the wall.
