April Moon

April Moon

The darkened sky opens to reveal

a quite full pink moon which was submerged

under waves of thick black and gray clouds.

Its brilliant light shines so softly on

the great sprays of gold forthysia

that spring straight up like large, loose feathers

from the base of each broad, sturdy bush.

At dawn the air is rich with bird song

while spring’s sweet breath wafts in gentle wind.

Sanctuary #2

Sanctuary #2

Winter needs no permission

for its collection of clouds

that carry snowy storms.

Our judgement may not

rejoice in the acceptance

of this season’s situation.

Some nights, however,

in the still, crisp air

the full moon spreads

its pale light over

the alabaster landscape -

brings a sense of sanctuary

to the troubled soul.

Winter Moon & Announcement

Winter Moon

Winter moon peers

between branches,

as smooth as sticks.

Lost leaves that traveled

on the tireless wind

now lie along roads

or wind up in woods,

trampled by footsteps.

The moon’s enigmatic glow,

sensuous and ladylike,

softens the cold, still night.

Attitash Blue II

A desire to be the color

of the lake, tonight,

after the sun has set:

a deep blue leaning

so very slightly to purple,

blue of blueberries,

the blueberry blue
of Lake Attitash,

the lake of blueberries.

City days leave me scattered,

as autumn leaves depart

in every direction,

a need to gather myself,

a desire to be one color,

the color blue,

the color of blueberries,

the color of Lake Attitash

after the sun has set

into the lake of blueberries,

the blueberry blue

of Lake Attitash.
