The Raven in the Rain

The rain patters on fallen leaves,
Dripping from musty eaves —
The call of a raven.

The Source

“In your light I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi

Moving Color

A rising breeze
like a restful sigh
stirs idly the autumn colors

winter emergence

luminous autumn leaves
ascend in fiery silence
fleeing ghosts of winter

through Indian Summer we drive
swirling leaves behind us —
death’s glowing portals so near
