Gracefully Free Falling

snow rain purple leaves
foam crested waves returning
black night coming down

cardinal landing
shooting star on twilight sky
blooms after summer

overripe berries
beautiful sunset goodbye
splashing waterfalls

avalanche starting
butterflies settling on blooms
weeping willow tears

Magnolia Days

delight of jade spring
pink perfumed mass profusion
sunbathing bronzed blooms

cardinal sings loud 
from his perch next to blue sky

floral flamboyance
drawing the world's attention
the fresh, lovely days
