Straight Talk

Birds sound off with

caws and croaks,

chirps and tweets,

honks and hoots,

trills andĀ twitters,

but unlike us,

they don’t sound off

with lies.


The Long Goodbye

The blue blooms linger,

inviting the yellow blooms

to linger too, to join in

this late summer offering

before the days grow cold

and they too must depart.


Slow Dawn

Across the pasture

and the road, the morning mist

slowly crawls, causing

us to crawl too. Through the mist

we see what we might have missed..
