AUTUMN TRIPTYCH

I. RUBY PLEASURES

summer night sweats dry
to fever russet

umber rustles
under amber blown saffron

the swirling
melting butterfly air
covers cold earth

like a crackle quilt
of ruby pleasure death

II. LAKE HARUNA

one lone brown leaf
soft as lint
falls to the foot
of the naked elm

the trees still cloaked
in their colored coats
shiver in the mist
with impatient anticipation

III. CHILD’S PLAY

through autumn air
the children make their froggy leaps
into frosted pools
of leafy joy

spent summer shade splashes
red as windblown cinders
soft as ash and laughter
lapping at the edge of
evening
