Poetry for Autumn

Madrona over saltchuck
Letting go

Golden light
Madrona chasing
Memory of sun

Color leaves the sea
Last light gone
Waves fall asleep

Old man sits on log
Fisher dives and salmon leaps
Gold light on water

Most brilliant thing
In the evening sky
Distant cloud

Capitol Dome
Rain, mist

Salmon high
Golden space

Light fades
Pen stills
Two mallards rise

Autumn’s empty chasm
Spring’s torrent rushed
Pine yet clings

Autumn equinox
Summit of Third Burroughs
Brilliant fog

Sun in eyes
Fire on water
Kingfisher dives

Sunset stitched onto still water
Staccato song of the kingfisher
About to dive
