"LAST SWIM"​

End of summer,
Beach path remains
A beckoning walk
One last time.

Evening swim,
Great way to say
Goodbye.
Lingering thoughts of
Quiet days.
Next summer
Too far away.

Feeling 
Wistful.

DAY

Clouds in daylight
Take shape and form
Feed one's fancy
With imagery.

EVENING

They stalk the moon, 
Cloaking the light,
With
Shape and form.

NIGHT

A wondrous time!

"ECLIPSE"

Sept 28th.
Sat on the porch,
Cup of coffee in hand.
Watched for what 
Seemed like hours.
No pictures, 
Just memory
Capturing the view.
Quiet evening,
With woodsy sounds
Catching the dog's
Fancy.
Perfect night out!

CARVINGS

On the tree, his initials, not mine.
It was his tree, his land.
Walking always in silence,
Trusting each would know
When to speak.

My land now,
Same quiet paths,
Still comforted by the words
We didn't say.

EVENING

Favorite spot late in 
The day.
Spent hours painting
The view.
Let the night fade
Evening begins.

Nowhere to go;
Lean back and let
The colors show themselves.
The night begins
Slowly,
Wait for it.

"BRIEF ENCOUNTER"

Quick peek is
All I get.
Not more than a few
Minutes.
The rickety old chair
On the porch 
Briefly glows in the 
Cold light.
Reflects in the 
Coffee cup 
At my elbow.
Dark clouds gather,
All that was visible
Disappears.

"FROM THE BRIDGE"


Someone said that to
Paint the moon,
You first had to spend
A lifetime outside,
Watching and waiting 
For the perfect mix of
Clouds and light.
That may be right,
But time will tell.
I do know that
A good memory helps.

"THE OTHER SIDE"

Beyond the trees,
On the other side;
Glowing grasslands,
Lazy stream
Washed in moonlight.

Woodland path,
Full of shadow,
Images,
Real and imagined
Fill my mind.

Step by step.
The longest hundred yards
Ever traveled,
Leaving darkness
Behind.

"MOONSONG"

Night.
Darkness.
Filled with noises
Unseen.

Filled with 
The sense of
Nothing;
But wonder.

"COLORES DE LA NOCHE"

Hard to look at the
night sky.
Imagining warmth,
Vibrant colors.
El oro, la verdura,
Toques de naranje.
Amid the familiar
Blue-black night.

But there she was,
One jewel glowing,
Setting the night 
Ablaze!
