Autumn Feelings

the sound of raindrops

shivers autumn over skin

gone, sun-kissed summer

In the Spirit of Winter


Wet droplets in gray skies
seep color from my world,
trickle down the window
and dress my house
in sheets of coldness

Tonight snow flakes
whirl, they twirl
like a girl in dance
their whiteness descends
into mushy layer

So let’s stay in, my love
and wrap ourselves
in blanket warmth
while our eyes reflect
golden candle light

Leave gloves and scarf
and come, cuddle close
where heart meets heart
near the fireplace
‘cause winter is coming

Dressed in darkness


While the rain

pounds on the glass

washes my window clean

I’m slowly letting go

of my worries

my thoughts and ideas

until there’s nothing left

but relaxation

and the wish to go to sleep

good night, my friends

In the coolness

of my garden

I embrace the rain

and let its strength

seep through my bones

to nurture and mend

the cracks of

searing heat
