One edge
hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way

autumn evening
clouds like golden worsted
ah! what a joy

autumn serenade

colorful leaves
swirling like ballarinas
through the town's streets

fluttering, twirling
delicate signatures in flight
rising moth, falling leaf

..some in flannels

early autumn
some wear soft flannels
others are in coats
perhaps I should call her to meet--
surprise ourselves with how I'll dress

..from the window

why,  sorrowfully,
count the leaves, as they embrace
the ground,
from my perch by the window
I may miscount my darling tree's children

four-leaf clover was
a plain lie

Fragrance of life



almost
the one and only season
the colours, the weather, the scent
fragrance of life
Autumn
-
næsten
den eneste ene
årstid
farverne, vejret, lugten
duften af liv
efteråret
