Clutha River 1

River rushes on
Past the yellow trees of fall
Time is a circle

Travel in safety
On the back of a dragon
Better than carpet

A rainbow from the clover
Never seen before

At Fisherman’s Wharf
Safe from Pacific’s fury

As we travel the sandscape
Tracing where we went

Brings awe and trepidation
Curious respect

Harbor 3

Beyond stone jetty
Sailboats bobbing on the bay
Homes snug on the hill

Saturday, September 22, 2012


In an autumn breeze
When colors, by magic, mutate
Flutter to the ground

"O suns and skies and clouds of June,
and flowers of June together.
Ye cannot rival for one hour
October's bright blue weather."
- Helen Hunt Jackson

Mindful of culture

Could it be plate tectonics?
Or a tidal flat

Reflect neath violet sky
A zephyr on skin

Thick billowing clouds below
Fill my upward eyes

Got caught up in the action
Sparkles in my eye

On this day of remembrance
Without violence

Gentle glow of human face
Subtle knowing eyes

Ready, willing and able
You’ve got chores to do

Yes, it may be quaint
But it’s how I get to work
Up and down the hills

Portends a new grand canyon
Given time and tide

After the freshness of rain
Under clearing skies

Careful of the thorns
Do not approach the blossoms
Except with your eyes

Your minds, your hearts, your muscles
We have work to do

Not a myth but a mister
No Achilles heel

Cast upon welcoming beach
Land embraces sea
