Storms gather


Storms gather


I watched

the gathering




The deepness

of grey


near black


The fluttering

of aspen leaves

the insects caught

in updrafts


it is just

a matter

of time

Mysteries and messages


This week over a few days

Docks loosen their grip

And will allow themselves

To be pulled roots and all


You and I disagreed

In our views on religion

So we agreed not to talk

You respected my knowledge


On growing and gardening

You embraced cosmic forces

And the movement of planets

And the hidden influence of stars


But we both took pleasure

Sometimes surprised by nature’s way

And the complex beauty of a flower

Or the shape of a trees repose.
