Starry Night


we love to sneak out

amidst swarm of fireflies

a true starry night

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

Fate & Stars


Photo, mine

a white moonflower
comes to life in the moonlight
just living her fate

no fault of the stars, tonight’s
moon is wielding her magic

Autumn Haibun

It is that time of year again, my favorite. My trips to the mountain become more of a favorite thing. Actually seeing stars is more of a necessity. It seems the air is clearer and visibility is at its best. Though that may have more to do with the constant drizzle of leaves from the twin maples. At any rate, I find myself more around the outdoor fire pit, marshmallow stick in hand. A ritual infused with laughter, chatter and tall tales with family and friends.

autumn leaves
tremor in crip air
full moon night
