as the equinox draws closer
the autumn is bountiful;
like sliding into a hot spring
after the hectic summer.
There is always magic in the air
when September brings its colors forth,
waving its flag proudly, cheers erupting joyously.
We change over to hold the trees closer
together, waters cold and sparkling like mercury
bursts of fragrance lingering every day;

Sliding toward the equinox
Autumn's fan dance with the weather
Bondage freed from Summer's tether
Windy whispering come hither
Leaf-fall sequins slink and slither
Azure promise on the wing
Harvest passion's offering
Fox-eyed torch song coquetry
Chanteuse of inconstancy
Joie de vivre to smoky grey
Fickle fall will ever stray

and it was good.
The earth was shrouded in darkness,
and God spoke it to be.
It was Good
The plants he raised up,
always to bloom beautifully.
And it was good.
The animals he spoke into existence,
from the giraffes,
to the intricate patterns of butterflies wings,
he created them.
And it was good.
And then when it came to us,
he didn't just simply speak,
he molded Adam,
and breathed into him.
God created us,
in his very image,
and it was very good.
Why then, do I not see myself as beautiful?
Why, when given a compliment, do I say, not really?
Why can't I stand to think anything positive about myself?
God has intimately made us.
Why can't I see that this beauty,
also extends to me?
I try so hard to not think negatively,
but it happens all the time.
But even though I failed today,
and will fail again tomorrow,
I know that God still loves me.
he created me.
And perhaps someday I'll believe.
I'll believe that

Lonely angel wants to play
Soft scent of jasmine
Leads me to follow
Announcing a new season
Lonely angel wants to show
Around a crystal moon
This clear night of full moon
I'll following the northern winds
With feet on the ground
Sacred ground that feeds us
Stripped of clothes and preconceptions
I hear the immensity of the universe
I close my eyes in total respect
And I can hear the meeting of the leaves around me
And I can feel the smell of humid ground between my toes
Soft scent of jasmine
That seduces me
That captivates me
Leads me to follow the lonely angel
The lonely angel that lives within me
Always guiding me back to home
In the arms of the mother earth.
Blessed Be )O(

then can we not find a better way.

handful of sunshine
at twilight, the bees drink
and become fireflies
black seta molting
to the glass-bodied bulb
writing in comet trails,
a child's first sparkler
little lightning bolts
shooting stars incarnate
drunk on igneous gold,
they do not notice
as the virgin flower sinks
to be born again tomorrow
a warm-blooded goddess
baptized by the night

And golden light spreads across the horizon,
Delight grows in my heart,
Arisen from eternity.
Flowers, wind and sunshine
Sing this song,
That is mine but not my own,
Because everything results in itself.
Eternity kisses the moment,
Nobody is here any longer.
From firmament to firmament,
Love has its realm.
Rising above the huge world,
Soaring in the air, in the wind so gently
Until I will fall again.
Flying up to the sky,
Passing the clouds.
Finally, conquering the dreary gravity -
Light, easy, satisfied with peace … und free.
Greedy, filled with false pride,
As the worlds are subject to us.
How foolish we are –
Because only birds can fly
And leaves in the wind.

Spreading across the sky in a collage of celestial remnants
From furious swirls of vibrant orange, red and yellow
Reaching toward the rest of the world
Magenta arms adorned with star-ruby and sapphire
Cooling in the mist
Morphing into an aloof blue
Slender fingers touching midnight
To diamond rings on fleek
Her arms here to take me away to the world of.......

I shall crash upon the shore
Let my waves
Rush upon you
And remove all sense of being.
Floating in the water
Pushing and pulling
Is that like the tide?
Always the same
Always on time
Yet I don't
Yet I float in nothingness
Bound by rules
Can we call it freedom?
Knowing no rules
Everything is still
Would stay forever
Could be reality
Eating the old
Giving birth to the new
Mother and executioner
Euphorie automnaleEuphorie automnale1 month ago in Free Verse
Lorsque la dernière fleur doucement fanera,
Inclinant sa corolle, laissant choir ses pétales,
Entamant son bel effeuillage, la forêt frémira,
Ses branches dénudées sous le vent automnal.
Les arbres charmeurs agiteront leurs ramures,
Conquis et apaisés par la caresse du déclinant,
Succombant au chant langoureux du mourant,
Cet estival rayonnement, apogée de la nature.
Septembre, le bon saupoudreur de merveilles,
Reviendra étrenner sa palette d’orange et d’or
Sur les hêtres et les saules au bord du sommeil.
Une larme de pluie va tomber, ô céleste trésor !
