How Autumn Starts

branches
reintroduce themselves
one tiny flare of red

The River The Sunlight And Wind

painted an abstract
capturing
the whole of life

No Longer Even A Memory

like the night’s dreams
morning mist disperses
until dissolved

The Reeds Swear Sovereignty

late summer
wears a crown of wood
nobility of trees

Happenings In Forest Time

sunshine makes for shade
as the river flows
and mushrooms grow
