Poetry for Autumn

Madrona over saltchuck
Letting go
Reaching





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
Camouflaged





Salmon high
Golden space
Silhouette





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
