Zinnias

White zinnia,Pink zinnia

Dancing in the sun

We spent summer days together

What a pair we made.

Truth or Fiction?

Pictures of Sunset and Clouds in Oregon
Actual Pictures of Sunset and Clouds taken in Oregon

Things are not always as they seem.

What we see may not be what is.

Sometimes eyes play tricks,

And our mind does also.

We need to ask ourself,

Is reality

Truly what

My eyes do

See?

Tree Talk

Trees

Trees seen whispering

To the fading grass below

“It’s that time again.

Leaves are preparing.

Who’ll be first to fall,

And cover you with color,

Smothering your blades,

Saturating the landscape

With variegated patchwork?”

Sighting September

Moonlit night

August tried to warn

Us of her impending move.

She sent us cool drafts,

Chilling memos of warning.

Yet, wrapped in sweaters

We missed her exiting.

Undercover of night,

With just the moon as witness,

Fall bearing September came.
