A Peaceful Life

As vivid summer blooms fade
on now withering vines
when autumn’s breeze strolls in
on the cusp of a velvet peach dawn
I cherish these beloved times.

Closing my eyes and taking a deep breath,
Nature’s sounds surround me
as hummingbirds flit here and there
defending their territory in the air
grey thrashers sing a welcome song.

With each day comes a deep sense of grace
filled with the peace of quiet harmony
As I spend each exquisite tranquil day
cherishing the simplicities of life
with grateful humility.

The Fickleness of Autumn

Through the filigreed golden veil of dawn
October drifts in on a seductive breeze
kissing the wavering vibrant leaves,
hovering, unsure of what hues will please
the fickleness of the autumn season.

Mornings fresh and brisk evoke, a yearning
for my tattered sweater, wrapped in its folds
where the faintest scent of last night’s fire
warms my soul in the fleeting cold.

Each afternoon in the leaf scattered garden
dappled shadows grace the etched stone walls
taunting the geckos to come out and play
before the abrupt ending of a perfect fall day.

As twilight’s brush paints the western sky
with an artist’s brilliant palette
blending red, orange, purple and yellow
on the canvas of a deepening turquoise sky
the sun in sadness relents, and sighs a long goodbye.

Rising Star

No worries dude it’s cool,
singing mournful blues
he strums his scarred guitar,
chances are he’ll go far
if he believes
He’s a rising star.
One night
when he’s crooning a tune,
he hears the perfect words
‘Copasetic, Man- you sing like a bird!’
