The Reeds Swear Sovereignty

late summer
wears a crown of wood
nobility of trees

Seen And Seen

that spot of light
the glint in the eye
of the universe

Landscape Tapestry

time’s shuttle
branches, reeds, weeds

Marsh Alighted

the reeds
burning through daylight

Red Canoes Huddle In The Protection Of The Pines

as cold gathers
at the marsh’s edge
and starts to fill the sky


taking in the scene
the season’s change
to brown from green
