This morning's drive to work shone brightly as I saw reddened wispy clouds moving from a full moon in the west over to the morning sun rising in the east.  It inspired the following words....

scarlet mornings sweep
colorful cadence across
dust-ridden dance floors


dancing wallflowers
gaze upon distant faces
freshly painted light

hazy morning skies
lend to early hidden light
bursting sunshine bright

days crawling upon
land emerging colors sight
autumn days to night

To touch the simple pleasures,
one must look to life's beautiful wonders.

I Held Your Strength...

With grace you tenderly caught my tears,
let them trickle across your palm.
With pride you held the strength
of the world in the other hand.

And with each moment, through the years,
we nurtured each other like psalm.
Held tight insuring we could go the length,
forever, to be one we stand.

Yet quietly, slipping silently through mirrors,
the days soothed like aching balm.
Slipping past, beyond, out of arm's length,
like a shell buried deep within the sand.

Til one day at last, had to face all fears,
letting my soul come to rest, be calm.
For lost from all my being it's strength,
when left to live my days upon this arid land.

Through grace I tenderly caught your tears,
let them trickle across my palm.
With pride I held your strength
for the world in my other hand.

As We Lay Resting

stillness overtakes
tendered burning moments light
shadows of grey clouds

colorful dances
air-born as leaves change these days
fluttering downward

blankets of firelight
line paths once clear and leading
to thought-filled doorways

lending forth dark nights
scattered stars sparkle upon
simple silhouettes

bringing new beauty
day becomes nights shadow-light
worlds become quiet

reflective shadows
dance upon icy waters
as we lay resting

Yesterday's Shadow

whispered morning breaths
golden fire lies down her path
Willow stands weeping

yesterday's shadow welcomes
Autumn's naked silhouette

The Raven's Truth Be Told

Mag 84

She whispers secrets
 into the night
the heavens mourn
the raven's truth be told
