autumn’s intensity
of color and light
renews my spirit

Queen Anne and Goldenrod

the meadow
a fall display

Now The Light Slants Towards September

shadows grow longer
the birdhouse stands empty
the quiet of fall approaches

Fall Preparations

room in the cheeks
room in the stash house
work to be done


nestled between
the snow and log
late fall’s remains

The Maple That Is Sunshine

like splashes
of the sun
fall’s fine finish

The Leaves’ Lullaby

a song
made of silence
in the falling hush

Late Meadow

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

Afternoon With Cows

we bask
in autumn light
as time floats by


in this fleeting moment
the mountain’s divinity
made itself known

Rain In The River

hurries the river
ever increasing her curves

Autumn Gold

of leaves
prosperity of color

In That Space

between the leaves
and their reflection
resides consciousness


browning ferns
shedding leaves
to the earth returned

Ordinary Hero

summer stalwart
holding up the sky
fending off fall
