leaf fall carpets woods
quiescent hearts paint dusk blue
dark wings slice cool air

                                       wind tosses pine boughs
                                       whistling under the eaves
                                       cold lake loon echoes

full moon chases fox
chilled mountain shadows settle
among dried nettle

                                       feeling euphoric
                                       color splashes golden-red
                                       frost laden dreams call

wandering no more
festive souls come together
radiant bonfire

                                       defiant cold rain
                                       counts coup on secret lovers
                                       despite singing birds

memories bursting
laughing clouds crystallize sky
before drifting white
