Hushed

There’s a bit of a hush which settles in the corners and cracks of my house the days before Christmas. With the evening sky painted in tone of vibrant colors, the lingering smells of sweet spices and the sound of old carols I settle in for a long winter’s solstice. I really don’t recognize ifContinue reading “Hushed”

Barren Hills

The mood was not tranquil  as camels journeyed barren Earth across sands of time. A low moan, as hooves sank with each calculated step. ~ Dull was the night’s skyline  except for the Star afar off making long shadows stretch silhouettes from day’s treks, as royalty ranted atop roof. ~ Another moan… in child birthContinue reading “Barren Hills”

They change before my eyes:translucent, transparent telling of coming changes chanting their farewells across the sky. If trees could talk what would be said of their transformation?Would willows weep or birches balk as their leaves are wisp away? Maples seem to chatter in wind;while oaks remain stately and onlyrumble, rattle, roar as autumn exits clingingContinue reading “Storms of Leaves”

Why Wolves Howl

Between a sentinel of trees, in the deepest of twilight an image lurks down moon lit path. A chill in the air ruffles thick fur. He is alone. Each step leaves paw prints in the dirt as evidence of his presence, under a dangling moon. He finds a knoll. There he sits waiting as timeContinue reading “Why Wolves Howl”
