a staring cat sits

many years I have known her

I wait on her tail

their bodies leaning away
the waiting room blues

 against a blue sky
bright red berries on branches

the meaning of light
love, where there once was darkness

Thanksgiving Day gray
it reminds me that others
have want,need,hunger

woodbine scarlet leaves
 mingle with grapevine on wall
my mind entangled

Saturday, November 19, 2011

fallen at my feet
different hues of autumn
stepping in yearning

Who needs church windows?
Bare branches and colored leaves
My own cathedral

I cut words and paste
place them in a book, and still
the pieces all fit

a dragon of leaves
evening sunlight piercing through
 autumn soon to die

 many wind horses
you ride up and you ride down
the blessings of prayer

fallen like oak leaves
little chairs in the garden
too soon you grew up

Have you ever felt like an out building
standing in a cornfield
surrounded by change
knowing your time has come and gone
your usefulness like old barn boards
broken and weathered
standing until you can't anymore
and thinking no one will notice
...the day you get felled?

vagrant street walkers
 sick in body, mind and soul
yet, community

soaring above clouds
geese form a v
honking into blue

daughter and her son
I walk through leaves to their gate
Autumn has begun

autumn leaf on ground
raindrops were caught in its curl
mouse drinks from old bowl

man perched on rooftop
a bird flies by, hits window
one a choice, one not

Friday, September 23, 2011

If I had not life
I could not die
which is the gift?
one the paper
the other a bow
opened only by God

white petals of joy
light moving across flower
while others sleep in
