reveling in my nakedness
fallen leaves and me

Quiet Surrender


asway in hammock
wrapped in the arms of nature
quiet surrender
to sound of tumbling creek
and the wind in trees, healing

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.

Watching folks go by, giving him the eye, ’cause he was just sitting there. Awaiting his turn with the Trainor.
