Autumn Quilt – A Shadorma

warm colors

wrapped in autumns chill

leaves flutter

then drizzle

under this mid morning sun

a shimmering quilt

The Shadorma consists of a six-line stanza (or sestet). Each stanza is written as 3-5-3-3-7-5 for a total of 26 syllables with no set rhyme scheme. When writing a Shadorma, I would concentrate on a specific subject. Shadorma need a title.

Troiku – Autumn

autumn gusts

swirling cloud of colors

tucked in autumns chill

……………………………………….

autumn gusts

the earth takes a turn

a time of renewal

……………………………………..

swirling cloud of colors

alive in the autumn sun –

the rustle tells the tale

……………………………………….

tucked in autumns chill

a gaggle of geese takes flight

squirrels run here, then there

August Day

It is early morning and the splash of color in the sky – a gift of sunrise. This second august day is cooler, more breathable than in previous days. It seems that autumn has stuck it’s big toe in.

I know it’s still a bit early for this but images of autumn leaves surfing crisp cool air fill my head. As I pass an especially woodsy area of this park, there is a steady breeze.

This is enough for a pause with outstretched arms, head tilted back and eyes closed, regardless of who is watching.



cool, breezy morning
hosts lively russle of leaves –
hints of autumn

Most people I know have been wondering, “what is up with her and all that walking?”

It started this past May when I decided to start walking off my growing quarantined butt, and it seems to be sticking.

But what they don’t know is.. it’s the little gifts I am party to along the way…

falling leaves

pelted by raindrops –

game of tag
