Bright Yellow

Bright Yellow

exciting colour!
   bright yellow
      may make 
your day.

all year we wait
      for autumn
to remind us:
   what a 
wonderful world
   we live on.

   look ahead to
   ice and snow,
and our dark
   winter world
should give way
   to springtime.

   evidence is in
for reason to hope 
exciting colour!
bright yellow
   may make 
      your day.

Veined Leaf

Veined Leaf

   all the little
      pathways
in a leaf!

      reminds me
   of forgotten
choices made,

   flowing with
the stream,
flowing with
      the go...

   then thinking
   about times
      and places
now inaccessible
   
   for us, there is
   no swimming
upstream, into
the mouldy past.

it seems time flows 
      one way only.
we cannot return, 

      to repair
    havoc we have 
sometimes wreaked.
