paying attention

Leaves-sm

It doesn’t have to be

the blue iris, it could be

weeds in a vacant lot, or a few

small stones; just

pay attention, then patch

 

a few words together and don’t try

to make them elaborate, this isn’t

a contest but the doorway

 

into thanks, and a silence in which

another voice may speak

This is where I live

Down-the-drive 

Green-and-birches

Be quiet or go home…

Go home

If you walk along in silence…

Faraway geese

 perhaps you’ll notice the geese at the other side of the river…

Fallen leaves

and the leaves that are beginning to fall …

  quiet-04

 landing in puddles of love…

Turning leaf

and turning color…

Shadow lace

while shadows dance like lace in the breeze…

Apples

and Nature arranges her still life.
