The Kiss

Foggy autumn dawn
Clouds descending from the sky
To caress the earth.


Mood Indigo

Late-season pansies
White petals veined with pale blue
Sensing winter’s chill.


Old men playing chess
An enameled samovar
Steams in the shadows.

October Sky

Low afternoon sun
Lazing in an auburn haze
Henna tints the hills.


The Tarot reader
Draws a card, and sips her tea –
Who will come today?

Dog Park

Sudden gust of wind
Puppies give delighted chase
To the falling leaves.


Flat silver river
Smooth as an unstruck nickel
Two gray geese descend.
