Bonus Sighting

Thanksgiving morning

a hummingbird darts around

outside my window


Scenes of the Season

crisp, sunny fall days

exit as the winds of change

enter from stage right

Annual Transition

muted fall colors

tinge the first phase of the path

to winter’s doorway

Breathing In Life . . . Breathing Out Thanks

drawing rain-clad air

into lungs filled too long with

forest fire haze

Deep Breaths of What?

strangely shrouded sky

irritated eyes and lungs

forest fire haze

Discovering Wonder in the Ordinary

eager for a walk

I prepare to be amazed

and head out the door

Nature’s Free Gifts

copper-colored sun

rising in the morning sky

first gift of the day
