Bare twigs
A moment of release

Single ginkgo leaf
Between storms
A flash
of gold

Where leaves once glowed red
Now blue, bright light — like a tide
of untroubled sea

Little rays of blue . . .
their September shadows long
for summer bees

Riverbank of the McKenzie
Last night’s moonlight

OSU pillars and walkway

 

Fragrance of rain-bruised azaleas on this side, a row of ripening elms beyond.

A petal drops, the hardy elms wave.  Do I hesitate & wait, it’s still not late, or

hasten through the unkept gate before my boots turn to stone

while I drowse in cozy comfort of what I think I know?

Where’s the gatekeeper? Who will be my ferryman?

Even when stuck on this cusp, I know, of course, they are me.
