Color Burns In The Rain


maple flames
birch trails
white smoke

Late Meadow


the season’s colors
settling down
to the ground into brown

New Light


the yellow woods
leaves offer up
the last of their light

First Light


as the garden bed sleeps
first light
blooms in the sky

Beautiful World

autumn colors
creep up from behind
nine lives are not enough

Sometimes

the grass is greener
right where you are

Sweet Slumber

the iris have been sent to bed
beneath a blanket of maple red

Snow Approaches

elevations
closest to heaven
wear white first

Divesting

DSC01749
the landscape disrobes
and through thinning color
the mountain emerges

Married

DSC01714
the roof is meadow of moss
a common law marriage
of structure and elements

Thirst

edges drink the colors
of weather and time
which paint the leaves

Challenge

competitive dahlia
challenges fall’s colors
with her October bloom and bud
