her passion for trees
especially in autumn
when leaves turn golden
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
autumn afternoon—
hoping to find her lost keys
under yellow leaves
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
drifting near the edge
of a little woodland pool—
seven autumn leaves
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
autumn afternoon—
wandering with my lover
through the browning fen
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
autumn afternoon—
somehow the sky seems lighter
shrugging off the rain
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
late autumn twilight
making me blink once, then twice
in awe and wonder
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
With wild geese wheeling,
how can I count the autumns
that have flown away?

woodland waters
coming with my hands cupped
to dip silence

Riddles

Low-lying woodland near Cache la Poudre River, Fort Collins, Colorado
 
my little green lawn
dreams about the pampas grass
I dream of the stars*


even woodland water pools
are filled with sacred riddles
