September Beauty

There are a few more gold leaves on our birch tree. A few poems from my September archives:

stars in the night
and colors
of garden mums
in the rain . . .
new poems begin

golden sun
on gold leaves
unconditional love

seagulls
down the beach
silver in the sky

twenty years
and more
since I came here
soybean fields
now gold

poems

poems can tell stories
they might begin in one place
and by the end of the poem
the poet and reader
are in another place
a poem can also save
one moment like a photo
as one season grows
to another – the beauty
of this day

there are poems

there are poems
in the clouds and
sunrise

and light seen
on the garage
from the kitchen

and one yellow leaf
on the birch tree

there are always poems
