Autumn

algid November

flutters red and yellow leaves

waves at creeping frost


a bite crisp and cool

rides a pine-scented zephyr

kisses tired, brown oaks

Summer Storm

rain sheets dark pavement

mist ascends from hot, black road
blinds blank yellow eyes

Dog Days

summer dog days flee
from autumn’s cooling drizzle
dying red leaves sigh

Thirsty

lightning forks black sky
punctures purple, pregnant clouds
quenches poor, parched earth

July Day

rain drips on curled leaves

thirsty from days without rain

on a July day

Spilled Blood

golden color rains
crackles and breaks under shoes
spills dry, lifeless blood

Outside

melting ice sheds tears
upon frigid windowpanes
outside wanting in
