Sunset sky streaks vermillion,
A breath before night.image

Sky Blind

Have you ever seen
A sky so crystalline blue
It makes the clouds dance?

Perfect

How many fall walks
with you, my love, are distilled
In this perfect day?

The Gift

New with every dawn,
Every day the world reborn.
We begin again.

Passage

A sweet morning mist.

Still sotted with summer, the

Goose flight brings a chill.
