Night Sky

I wake staring at night sky
on this sleepless night

in the cool darkness, a peace
a setting free of worries

Magic

wp-1585097747929.jpgIn the black of night
I step out onto the porch, no light…

Stars are bright, moon’s out
adding to the magic of the night

Wonder how many others are
are finding this night just right

Counting stars enhances the magic of the night

Solace – Tanka Tuesday

in the cool of this spring night-

moment of solace,

lower edge looks nibbled on,

a bit tattered, much like me

A Moment

Who stops to look up at the stars anymore anyway? Lately, I find myself doing that more and more. It seems my head is always in the clouds. My way of stopping to smell the roses, I guess. It feels like a stolen moment that brings me to a place of wonder. If only for a moment.

Then I step back into my reality.

hidden agenda,

rising tides

Into The Sea

melting into the sea
the full moon
leaves a candle bright (Jane Reichhold)

blanket of dry maple leaves
crunch beneath my feet autumn’s gone
