Beautiful Goodbyes

as colors fade
the intricacies
of structure emerge


Like Lovers Parting

monarch and flower
kissed by the sun
one final embrace
before the journey’s begun

Until We Meet Again

grasses weep
a tear or two
bidding summer ado

Too Soon To Say Goodbye

like summer
we linger
by the fencepost

Until Next Year

grass waves goodbye
to the deep blue
of the cold sky

Fare Thee Well

feathered ones know
winter says goodbye
in snow


the day arrived
in wisps and sighs
the kiss of color as night goodbyes
