Beautiful Rotation

The heathered pink and blue of
this dying winter's day, reminds me
joy is tinged with sadness, 
while love and sorrow be
a singularity

How the trees' wood turns golden 
in the gloaming!

We of the canopy there
in the dying light, hereby...

Stripped branches like veins
reach to the indigo, 
as much above ground now
as rooted below

Stars be our blanket,
protect us from the wind
till dewy 'morrow

Down In It

I smell so good after turning beds
of arugula by hand.

Ripe things are
getting harder to find

Some have laughed
though Inuits espy
the sun doesn’t rise
where it used to

They claim
polar bears
are burning

Through the center
we point now
to different stars

(a more distant spot
in heaven)

They can
no longer
say if tomorrow
will rain

She, Oh So Melancholy

She said she saw the bittersweet
autumn in early spring, knew that
sunlight over time would burn her
colder than today.

Haiku For Lost In The Fall

A trace of night mist
settles on the white birch boughs
Autumn calls you home
