bright canopy –
young leaves twinkle like stars
breezy spring day

Smoke & Veil

 

Lately, I have been feeling like I have been living in Animal Farm. I hate that damn book! I read it in my infancy. I was twelve, and it was my first year of High School. Yes, back then we started High School at 12 and finished at 17. I loved that book! That is, until my teacher busted my bubble. Class discussions opened my eyes to the fact that this book was about humans behaving very badly. To this day I remember the quote I asked the most questions about in class. “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”. I hate that damn book!

 

smoke unfurls-
a veil of antics
hides fire

Sense of Loss

fall colors gone
bare branches stalk gray skies –
sense of loss

Even a breeze may fail me
When I desire it.
Little I should grieve,
If only, sure of its coming,
I could await even a breeze
