Dying Grass Moon

Dying Grass Moon

Somber light leaks
   clouds cloak
      the Dying Grass Moon

Daybreak a month ago
   sun paints horizon
      gossamer sky

Season passes stealthily
   'til aware of
      light hidden longer

High plains
   shades of brown
      grass grieves

Winter's approach
   chills the lungs
      denudes prairie

From Far Away Places

From Far Away Places

Swirl of words
 flush twice

Insecurities spew
 continuous chatter

Mirror amplifies
 all the words

About nothing
 worry consumes

Place to hide
 instead of deep dive

Melodic Icing

Melodic Icing

Meadowlark songs
 usher in autumn
First hard freeze
 coated white with frost
Yet they're still here
 singing their melodies

Fall Snow Upon High Plains

Fall Snow Upon High Plains

dawn's glow festers
prismatic light
reflects upon ice
nostrils flare
exhale frosty breath
canter briskly
mane dances
tail held proud

Thoughts twisted in knots
Wondering if he'll come

Ponder taking same name
Gossamer filters shame

'Til silhouette reveals
Conviction's appeal
