Breathe in the night sky
Trees bedecked with starlight jewels
My heart feels  closer to you

Mighty Succession

reform

There is a beauty
In wreck and ruin
Where survival
Is the leading lady
Time worn
But still standing
The scars of violence
Begin to heal
Her pyroclastic flow
Long since dried
But deep down inside
Her core still burns

Fire of the sun
Brilliant energy reborn
Sweet orange blossoms

Perched atop tree roots
People are oblivious
Thoughts lost in silence

A natural monument
Muted witness to this day

Migrating Monarchs
Tumble from atop the trees
Black and orange leaves
