Colorful Drive

colorful drive
reds explode like fireworks
lipstick on leaves

* * * * *

acres of asters
and giant goldenrods
stop the car

* * * * *

the last light
decorated with a rainbow
sans my camera

Autumn's Golden Light


golden light  
as autumn season begins  
pause from urban life 

Swinging Bridge

swinging bridge
shadow moves under each step
river road

Jay Cooke State Park has a Swinging Bridge 
over the St. Louis River which makes for a very exciting road trip.

Due to rain and storm damage, it has been repaired or rebuilt now three times. 

It was much more exciting and had a wider range to the swing when I was younger.

Seasonal Desires

wish for
long summer days
cool morning dew

seasonal slow down
golden autumn light
frozen in time

Garden Sanctuary


garden sanctuary  

birds bees blossoms surround  

airplanes overhead  


My favorite place is in our backyard garden sanctuary.

Conversely, I can look up to see airplanes and I imagine traveling.

That Lump in the Throat


that lump in the throat  

when the heart slowly breaks  


the cabin's InBeaute sign  

that symbolizes our love and our life  

becomes part of our deep, rich past  


tears fall into the fire  


photo 9/4/2022 Burning sage for this sacred ceremony to bring peace and calm to this ending. 

Self-Portrait Burns



burns memories  


silly days  

pretending to be  

a painter  


now, I'm just me  



Self portrait painting burns.  

Hands Are Full

  petrichor   heavy in the air   fills our hands
