The Light Touch of October Sun

.
.
Autumn light
Gently filters
Dappled gold
And green
October leaves
.
The final soft
Caress of
Grandmothers,
Soothing ancient
Weary hearts,
Silent kindred,
A shared knowing,
Love and warmth.
.
Serenity’s touch
To glow within
Through the long
Dreary winter
.

Trees move around each other the same as people in a crowd move around each other.

October sun is shining over the St. Mary’s River.  This is as close as I can get.

Compassion of Stones

.
.
Each noon
Recedes
Farther
South
.
Warmth
Sinks
Behind a
Lost horizon
.
Clear night
Muted
By fogs
Cold
Colder
.
Gloom follows
.
Dreamless
Walks in
Shifting mists
.
Morning
Arrives shadowed
Less brightly
Warming
Walls hold
The chill
.
Unloved stones
Are compassion
Holding
History
.
Darkness lingers
.
Gray covers
Thought
Drifts away
.
Evening mists
Hide taboo
Conceals
Weakness
Shame
Forgetfulness
No matter
.
One foot
Unseen
Placed
Before
Stirring
The mist
The other
Follows
Wandering
Quietly
.
Autumn cobwebs
Ragged empty
.
Each night
Darker
Each day
More silver
.
Dread lessens
Moments
Blend
More closely
With
Approaching
Night
.
