From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

All Hallows Cat   

Slow and silent

dark and sleek

leaving no footprints

no scent, no spraint

that night she stalked

no shadows cast

beneath the hazy moon.


Weaving onward

across the field

and into the hollow

beside the pool

she sat a while

there looking in

with no reflection seen.


She stared at the water

calm and still

the suddenly, deeply

down in it’s throat

a vortex whiled

and gathering in

leaves and rocks

and then herself

were thrashing about

into the darkness

leaving alone

an echoing cry

and the lowering

hazy moon.

in autumn stillness

leaves fall as poppy petals

both carrying memories

of autumn morn

this golden

this golden

this golden
of harvesting

this golden
of natures year

October 27 … tanka

sun low in the sky
flickers in time with my speed-
I lower my eyes

driving the shadow striped road
beside the autumn carpet

The Fall

don’t mourn
the changing season
we leave our parent
not to perish
but to flourish
feed and nourish
deciduous circling
all death to life

different combinations

of all the same notes

October 9 … haiku

water plays with light

life plays with our emotions-

rainbows play with both
