late autumn rain
a final scent of summer
rushing through red leaves
a moment of lightness
reliving my broken dreams


rippling in the bay
her heavy heart


blood moon
I see myself
more clearly-
his grip on me
finally gone


early morning
my mind in a haze
of wildflowers


poppy petals dance
in afternoon breeze








Sunrise to Sunset

her grief
and tears
a hush
the sparkle
of sunshine

gull cry
what’s still left
from my past

fallen leaf
so alive
with sunset
