Shower of grasshoppers

Walking down a country road
not a cloud for miles around
shower of grasshoppers.

After sunset
the lightest dark
dawn of fireflies.

Apple abacus

Fruit trees
swing side
to side in
the breeze –
their apples
oscillating
like beads
on a giant
abacus –
counting
the harvest.

Infinite cornfield

Infinite cornfield

Rows of corn
press their ears
to the sun –
stretching
forever towards
the horizon.

Skyline sentry

Originally posted on The ancient eavesdropper:

Aloft screeches the skyline sentry,

perched on drooping cedar bough,

wide yellow eyes scanning for earthbound morsels,

head rotating to catch the slightest breath or footfall,

as whispers of wind stroke its mottled feathered horns.

The night begins with the rustle of foliage. 

Talons unclasped and wings spread wide,

locked in a silent swooping glide,

its reach connects with flesh and bone – 

one tiny heartbeat flutters and expires.

All lies still under the watch of an owl.

Violet twilight

The blue sky of day
& pitch black of night
coalesce in the
violet twilight.
