Fall Frolic

a true autumn day

chorus of dry leaves
swirl in a burst

trapped
in a crisp gust,
a fall frolic

A Cleansing

from wind swept ocean
angry waves belching debris
on shore – a cleansing

Hushed Reflection

it’s autumn again –
as the verve of summer wanes
gulls claim beach with zeal

a measured change – sound of waves,
empty shores – hushed reflection

Autumn Wind Talking

The morning wears the humidity like a cloak. Through still air, the cries of the hawk from the tree canopy. He seizes the opportunity to buzz the red tailed squirrels, bringing to a halt their morning romp. The morning gaggle of geese wander through like they own the place. All a part of the morning routine around here.

 

early morning walk
flutter ripple through trees – soon,
autumn wind talking

pieces of my life
on bits of paper mingle
with the coins

continues to elude me
