Tourists take sunrise selfies

Pacing gulls forageĀ

Sunflowers do wilt
Petals will shed
But when roots are not shallow
They may thrive again

Emotions uniting
Wind song through trees
Breeze stirs lake lapping
Shivering sighs, trembling leaves


Reminder: New Dustus Friday post…

A Diamond’s Tree

Sunspread shadows grace this lawn
Slingshot, wishbone, or tuning fork
Subtle fading cloudless sky
In recalling fall how
Everything died

Wondering why
I cherish spring
Bright tonal range
Refreshing breeze
Really simple
It can’t be…
Sparkling light
Through a diamond’s tree

Care for a Reading?
