The Painter’s Eye

autumn is an impressionist
embuing everything
with the emotion of light

How Autumn Starts

reintroduce themselves
one tiny flare of red

Watercolored Woods

thinned by the rain
what remains
intensified by space

To Dwell Inside Magnificence

an autumn
walk in the woods
is to step inside the masterpiece


not to be outdone
by turning maples
the stoplight dahlia

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
