dancing magic

leaves turn and bend
a winter scheme

inside my heart

dancing magic
in the sky, and in the wind

nature’s purveyor
and plenitude
of love

weaved
with delicate hands

a gift
beyond the scope
of mind

where
it remains lost
and

is only found
when we realize
it’s been there all along

I would like to thank Barbara Leonhard, and the team at MasticadoresUSA for publishing my poem, Starburst Pattern. If you’ve not yet read it, you can find it here. Thank you.

leaves fall from the tree,
the sky is cloudy and gray,
autumn fades, winter
is now here, and I
bundle up and make ready.

Leaves fall from the tree,
The sky is cloudy and gray.
Autumn fades. Winter.
