“In Autumn’s Absence”

A forest of trees vast in presence
hidden behind the venetian building blinds
Rustling in waiting further down each interstate
A melody to hear and then to contemplate
for in place of trunks remain skyscrapers
this strange city life that has many takers
with branches of illuminations 
from both corporate and residential rooms
with the flux of varying populations
some coming, some going, some staying
activities including people watching
and people praying
and for all the western viewing metropolis
varying altitudes did not seem to matter
for a fall season’s color was carved this night
to stop and to stare, and to savor despite
a forest of trees vast in presence
hidden behind the venetian building blinds

“Dusk from Above”

The spill of light on the Fox River’s path
Descends upstream with seasons in transition
As I took myself to a perfect position from above
To capture this juxtaposition of balance between
a myriad of thoughts
of what was gained, of what was lost
Yes, the light was leaving this sun-painted sky
just as the chlorophyll departs on this deciduous tree
that i’m orbiting around from what was found up here
and i’m losing myself to the tranquility of it all
as these days become cooler- 
as the leaves begin to fall
with this dusk from above…

"Sometimes We Make Room"

And old cliche whispered to me this day
in Holland, Michigan where skies were grey
and yet color found its way to come out and play
with our hearts which seemed yearning for change
and there was one reason for this season
to greet me discretely…

picturesque in part
where one stem would end, and where one would start
but it was different this year
because there was joy so near
and not so far off into the distance
or at least in this instance

for this was the spring
where i learned to let go
to what any day could bring
after the winter, after the snow
for sometimes we make room
for those special things to bloom…

"Like Linus and His Blanket"

A beautiful, Bangalore-based golden retriever named Krypto is about as sweet and affectionate as can be- that syncapated breathing full of rythym beating to the drums of joy for all he meets and greets. Definitely one to fetch a ball or simply fetch a petting session from any of his humane counterparts, Krypto is what helps to make any day more enjoyable. And, when it's time for an afternoon nap or evening slumber, know that his sweet dreams are never without his favorite blanket. He'll even trot this childhood attachment up and down the stairs- perfect placing this amenity to surpass the comfort of any body pillow or teddy bear. Profound personality traits become something to cherish about our companion pets- their "quirks" becoming something staple with their routine and adored just the same. And so, to Krypto who has won the hearts of his forever home, let that marble floor reflect the precious nature of Krypto and his Linus-like blanket tendendcies....

“February’s First Day”

The irony of hues for this month to truly choose what winter was supposed to greet us with was long overdue and welcomed just the same. The midwest’s first blanket of snow was here to show that the feeling for revealing the appreciation for the change of seasons could simply be in the here and now. With burning birch tree embers from an open fireplace nearby, I stared through that window and never questioned why but rather when. When would this day return because it is this day when anyone would learn what winter joy could bring….
