JOY to Place



Joy to Place


an orchestration within there BE
all that is experienced by a YOU, a ME
resounding be our pulsing heart
from which life shall not depart
a rhythmic signaling from chambers divine
the inner calling to SELF yours, SELF mine
in ways of care and understanding shown
alchemic and golden our hearts be known
and when in accord with love and grace
within our BEING, ’tis JOY to place.

Palettes Divine

Shadows Cast Gold


Golden Crowned Kinglet

a morning sky, shadows cast gold
a sighted bird, a tale to be told
colors gray and golden yellow be the sky
so too, a bird before me does fly
could this winged creation with colors gray
be my muse anew this rising day
smile I, when entertained be this thought
by the pleasure sighting this bird has brought
a poet, an artist, amused I choose to be
by palettes divine gifted onto me.

Rustling Leaves



rains in libation sweet yesternight
upon awakening all held in morning light
magical be the light and shadow upon the tree
when the leaves in splendor of gold jeweled be
such gems of grace Autumn lovingly does bring
listen, listen, rustling leaves in soft winds sing.

Two Leaves


two leaves, each an offering of autumn's grace
one onto the other held in heart's place
a sanctified array they do reveal
be these of blessings beyond conceal
chosen by hearts that live God's love
hallowed they be by the majesty of heavens above.

Rains and South Winds Yesternight, Tappan, New York



Rains and south winds yesternight
A sky of gray be the morning’s light 
Each fallen leaf laden with the falling rain
Their wind swept flight put to tame
A brimming blanket of leaves upon the ground
Quiet they lay, gone their rustling sound
Soft be this bedding of leaves from branch and bough
Winds of Autumn and rain holding to nature’s vow
Branches with leaves in the splendor of color some yet be 
Crimson, russet, orange, and gold donned by many a tree
Trees barren of leaves reach to the heaven’s above 
Past the winter to come, Spring anew,  blessings and love.
