Jazz

cauldron of rhythms
bass, drums, wailing tenor sax –
jazz cacophony
summer night under the stars
soulful rhythms fill the air

Red Leaf

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

OctPoWriMo

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.

Troiku

in my garden
starflowers bloom
come and see

in my garden
a kitten chasing a bird
he thinks he can fly

starflowers bloom
glow in moonlight
earth borne stars

come and see
the drizzle of autumn leaves
outside my window
