annual May gray, June gloom
a calm reflection
new lavender blossoms rest
against faded, silver skies

Brisk Fall

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAblankets from the chest
fleece from the drawer
chimney smoke begins to soar

a fine crispness
familiar changing of season
though surprising, when upon

fresh chill in the air
the first crackling fire
nights of early retire

another place
other times they stir
a gentle reminder
