Opalescent

Opalescent

Craggy rocks
veiled with
gauzy mist
Morning air
chilling in
it’s mystery
Dramatic colors
unfolding
with the hours
passing
Greys turning
to blues
as the sun rises
with it’s warmth
Changing the 
landscape 
in its ever-moving
cycle of light
following dark

Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope

The bruised sky
patterned with purple
and blue
slowly fading
into golden ochres
signaling an
end to darkness
 
With the new dawn
a brightness and
healing
Erasing night’s
shadows
as day 
becomes starless
 
Panoramic
spectacle of
pigments and hues
An ethereal display 
of ever-changing
evocative colors
Impossible to harness

Skyscape

Skyscape

The sky awash
with hues of cerulean,
turquoise and indigo
Reflecting my
ever changing moods
Bright and expectant
falling silent
with deep thoughts
Followed by stillness
as the blues turn darker
Subtle changes
in colors
Collaborating
Sweeping the expanse
Carrying my musings
to another dimension

Changing

Changing

Summer fades into history
yet one more time
as leaves desiccate
and fall to the ground
 
Carpeting the earth
with resplendent remains
while heralding in a new
season to be crowned 
 
A changing kaleidoscope
Delighting our senses
with colors rich and golden
Dead, but alive, in all its splendor
 
The fragrance of pines
and wood smoke in the air
Give thanks for the season
and for all it does render

Color Wheel

Color Wheel

One brushstroke of blood-orange
sweeping across the dark grey canvas
Silvery clouds framing, illustrating
the dramatic landscape
 
As the day comes to rest
the sky releases its final colors
in a spectacular explosion 
and the view begins to reshape

Autumn – Poem of the Month – October 2018

Autumn

Acorns crunching under feet

Squirrels making a hasty retreat

Leaves of different colors fallen

This is now the season of Autumn

Humidity has finally left the air

The sun lies lower with less of a glare

A crispness now freshens the landscape

Summer has finally found her escape

Flower petals dying out on stems

Fall winds will perform the cleanse

Miles of fields recently mowed

Lined with hay rolls of colored gold

Illuminating the glorious landscape

Nature beginning to take shape

Sheaves of wheat standing propped

Not a sign of any left uncropped

A panoply of pumpkins hauled to a patch

Happy children hoping to catch

the biggest they can find

For a Jack-o-Lantern to be designed

Halloween approaching in a matter of weeks

Costume considerations and rosy cheeks

Trick or treats

Lots of sweets

Bottles of cider from apple orchards

Do clocks go back or forwards?

Thanksgiving turkey and sweet potato pie

Family visits and stomachs to satisfy

Obsequious children asking for cookies

Negotiating the odds like a bunch of bookies

Football games on television

When do we eat? Such indecision

Remembering what we are thankful for

Never forgetting those who went before

Dedications and gratitude

Private moments of solitude

A season of harvest and plenty to share

Someone is hungry in the world out there

Mosaic

Mosaic

This is where I want to be
With people eager and free
Different looks and colored hair
Seems a place where we can share
A diverse cultural melting pot
We get to see what each other’s got
Learning to respect our neighbors
and appreciating their labors
New colors, sights and sounds
Different foods to be found
Some have suffered like we cannot imagine
Escaping a vile and dictatorial faction
Needing our comfort and kindness
Along with some color blindness
We all bring something to the table
It is not necessary to label
We can learn a lot with an open heart
Our mosaic life is an abstract art
