A Knowing

the blush of autumn
now long gone, a quiet grace
takes its turn in time –
through creaky bones, a knowing –
like spring vines set to run wild

Decay

in throes of autumn
blanket of leaves takes a turn –
the scent of decay

on this balmy night
a sliver of a moon dart
in, out of clouds –
absorbed in their play, lightness
takes hold – I’m myself again
