The Black Stone Path

A planning meeting at the Union Arts Center, Sparkill, New York... 

an interlude...  the poet's pen finds expression...

The Black Stone Path

leaves brilliant and shadowed in the afternoon sun
cast they their grace in glory upon the black stone path
 warming light and gentle breeze of a late summer day
humming sounds of cars, buses, trucks, as they pass on their way
the STOP sign and so the called for pause, a moment's rest
time, season, plan, doing, doing, doing its best.
