December slant of light


The sun
in December
dwindles in the realm of time
This seeming deficiency is overcome
as the low slung slant of light across the horizon 
catches subtle nuances of 
detailed promise 
in seed
for the spring to come

Winds of Change





Winds of change
blow out the clear of calm
ruffle the edges of complacency 
texturize reflections
set rippling nuances to our perspective

November song


Late November hues 
blacken branches
dripping muffled sighs
bemoaning late apologies
for twice-fold dimming flight









Then a moment, a reprieve
suddenly brought to light 
catch a slanting sun
a flash -- a slant
waves strum ultra violet song

Reflect


Having made her mysterious presence
She
the Ice Goddess
pushes me daily
 to her watery shore
where cumulus reflections ripple
 with atmospheric breadth
recalling back ... rings of laughter 
    those swallow fledglings
 in July's playful flight
...coming now... 
to feel
 this moment's own
 grey winter specked sight.

Ice Goddess




Over night she appeared
from a sudden, first of the season, snowy deep frost


Struck by awe, I was
seeing her standing there
on her icy platform

Shining in dawn's pure light
wings spread
to ride the currents blowing in
a great change





First Snow

Thyme Time



Time is up for this thyme
patches browning brittle dry
broken heads of goddesses 
witness
and wait
uncertainty creeping round
for a sign

do nothing,,, the first rule
sustainable
self-sufficient

....breathe....

Indian Summer




Can't let go of summer
so
nature gives a short repeat
autumn heat
enough to swim
 for old times sake
with a new twist


 crickets
scour their legs 
messaging with sound 
the slanted light

Lake Tahoe Anonymous Art




it seems that humans can't help but arrange debris on a beach to satisfy the inner urge to create. 
The last most likely produced unwittingly by squirrels and/or the wind.

Moon in Sunset



Across the lake and back
kayaking
 moon appeared in the sunset
surprising me

Plums


Plums

Old tree
 cut down in a stroke of meanness
It thrived
under the earth
Shoots reached slowly
out from the source
stealthily 
seeking a wary spot
growing, unnoticed
after years of solitude
 a new tree 
with many tributaries
into the hands 
of an accepting pruner
then giving it's gifts 
year after year.

Change



Orange 
meets red
until one color
 can't outdo the other

sun brightens
red comes forward
with her longer wavelength

Orange is nanometers away

a cloud, and then
spectrum's other side
beckons blue green
spitting their calm 
over the fire of 
redorange

dance the change

Fronds






Out doors
Bar on the beach
one margarita 
Pacific rays
catch the lines'
vibrating
wayward fronds
