Breakthough


Breakthrough

Keep watch.
You will see signs.
A spot of light shows
on the horizon.
Colors come and go,
intensify or lighten.
The revelation may
be slow or fast,
be gone in seconds
or last and last.
Be ready.
You may sense
the breakthrough,
but it comes in
its own time.

Beauty


Beauty

Beauty comes to us
and sits
to let us take it in.
Imprints its colors
and its lines
upon our minds
so we may go to it
in the times
when such beauty
is hard to find.

I'm going to take a fall break. The next post will be October 19.

Balance


Balance

The robin appears
to be standing
on one foot,
trying to keep
his balance in
the same old
place. In reality,
he is caught
in mid step
and will soon
be moving forward.

A Graceful Exit


A Graceful Exit

The duck swam
in the pond
like a mini-boat
leaving it's wake
behind it.
It sometimes joined
the others, but
more often, traveled
on its own.

When it neared the shore
the duck spread its wings
and propelled itself
onto the stone.
The time had come
to make a graceful exit.

In the Background


In the Background

What is in
your background?

Are there more
weeds or flowers?

Is the count
important?

Or, is the issue
to which do you

give  the  power?

When Fall Arrives


When Fall Arrives

When fall arrives,
a different beauty
lives in the trees.
The leaves put on
a colorful show
before they let go.

When fall arrives,
the air turns cool.
Not cold enough
to make us hide,
but we use a
jacket to go outside.

When fall arrives
and summer ends,
the birds take wing,
leave town and then
make us wait till spring
to see them again.
