POEM: “sunflowers”

sunflowers”

charcoal heads droop, their glowing halos 
weighted with the heft of so much cheer

petals flame this dinner table hearth
lightening the heart of this happy home

sunshine yellow arms outstretch to embrace 
or supplicate, cut from their grassy beds,

their tendrilled roots removed, replaced, 
stabilized instead by a shallow red glass

its life-giving water dries up all too soon

POEM: “Autumnal Love”

Autumnal Love”.

evening songs tattoed

across an autumn breeze

.

a golden sky’s nutbrown breath

leaves pepper the air

.

birds prepare to flee the coming freeze

frost’s first exhale boldens the winds

.

the burgundy and orange world 

crunches beneath our feet

.

no wonder we call this season

fall

POEM: “Sound”

Sound

 

If a tree falls in the forest

        it makes a sound

even if there’s no  one

            there to hear its fall

even if we’re all

               too deaf to hear its fall

            It impacts the ground

            creates waves of sound

                upon the air we breathe

                          recycles breath of those long gone

of all who ever lived

    filters through the trees

        that sway in the breeze

            The tree lives

                                falls

                                    dies

            with the same air

            impacts the same earth

                as everyone else

 

Its sound is the sound of the universe.
