First Frost

Cotton boll snow storm
Frosts southern field and furrow
Shimmering solstice

Song of ancestors sorrow
Blowing on the wind of change

Being in nature
I am reminded that
I am merely a portal
A channel for the universe
Part of a greater web
Of connections and purpose
And I find solace in the thought
All that have come before me
All that will come after me
Are part of a bigger plan

Orion

Southern migration
Autumn’s cold front conveyance
Bird’s night Hejira

Orion and Sirius
Give chase at morning’s first light

Auric Dune Sunflowers
Mirror early morning sun
Track across blue sky

Wave goodbye to past summer
Sultry days and firefly nights

Widow dressed in black
Guardian of her cosmos
Gossamer egg case

Red hourglass tracking time
Cobweb cradling future

Note: She is in fact a Brown Widow. Her venom is just as deadly as a Black Widow but her potential delivery is not. I went with the word “black” above because most people are more familiar with her cousin species and well, poetic license. Photo taken in a storm drain.
