Perched atop tree roots
People are oblivious
Thoughts lost in silence

A natural monument
Muted witness to this day

First rays of sunshine
Rousing lovers from sleep
Limbs intertwined

Morning full of promise
New blossoms to open

Fade to Blue

Glittering sun beams
Glissade across stained glass panes
Mercurial mood

Shifting bright candy colors
Until daylight fades to blue

Lightening Strike

Deep in the grey gloam
A single flash of lightening
Creation begins

Purifying rain tumbles
Comforting my depression

Tears

Tears flow down my cheeks
Long after the rain has stopped
Puddle at my feet

Your soothing palm on my back
I am no longer alone

First Frost

Cotton boll snow storm
Frosts southern field and furrow
Shimmering solstice

Song of ancestors sorrow
Blowing on the wind of change
