Fraiku–Free-fall

kaleidoscope flakes 
free-fall from oyster pearl sky
winter’s taste on tongue

Currents

both rivers and stars
flow in transient currents
outside time's constraints

Advance

soft muted colors
paints autumn’s subdued advance
summer sulks away

Sparks

gases twine
seek amorphous fit
black kisses
gorged with light
flings sparks through the universe
celestial coupling

Serenity

simple and serene

nature speaks in blue and green

calms naked spirit

Bedazzle

night sky unfolding
whispers coming from beyond
speaks an oracle
of divine engendering
wise ancient stars bedazzle

Thirsty

lightning forks black sky
punctures purple, pregnant clouds
quenches poor, parched earth

More Sunflowers

Look there...
Beside the stream
Lovely heads wave gaily
Sunflowers say, heat's on the way--
Summer!

These two watercolor paintings I completed a while back are my last hurrah to sunflowers and summer for the year. I hope. 🙂 I’m more than ready for fall.

Sunflowers

golden sunflowers
burnished orange by August’s gaze
summer winding down
