Poppy in the Sun

Poppy in the Sun

a blast of colour
   confronts us
in our walk.
it gives me
      pause,
and so i stop.

      i think of 
   bright and
shiny things 
      that i
   might want.
but though they 
   sparkle
in the light,
i know better,

   so I like to think, 
because their glitter 
has so little meaning 
      in fast 
approaching night

Maple in Autumn

photography
loves daylight,
any light
excellent
for something.
today,
this minute,
it’s great
to be alive.

every day is
beautiful,
good day
to live.
spring all
excitement,
summer bright
colours,
autumn leaves
a blast
of colour,
wild mushrooms
popping up,
winter
white snow

photography
loves daylight,
any light
excellent
for something.
today,
this minute,
it’s great
to be alive.

maple in
winter,
spring, summer,
and then
the maple
in autumn
is best of
them all

photography
loves daylight,
any light
excellent
for something.
today,
this minute,
it’s great
to be alive.
