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
