Breathing Free

The best things in life are fleeting;
the savour of a home grown melon, dripping sweetness,
the caress of a soft chinook wind on a winter cold face,
the oriole’s song vibrating down the ravine,
the prismatic gems on a raindrop studded lawn,
the good earth breathing humus into the dusk.
The best things in life are fleeting and worthy
of remembrance so that in dark moments
we may close our eyes, hold them close,
and breathe free again.

The Fleeting Season

I
The honking wakes me.
Geese slice summer to ribbons
like Damocles’ sword.

II
Winter is the sword
suspended over our heads,
the autumn spoiler.

III
The fleeting season,
autumn glows in the last light
of a waning sun.
