Bike Ride

As I ride past McKay Lake

a whir of burnt yellow

soft orange, cerulean glass

ripples, reeds reaching

for the sky, petrichor and

warm pockets of air

surround before cool

drafts numb my cheeks

I think: I am enveloped

in an embrace.

Autumn leaves dance

my eyes graze

memories decayed, crumbles

soon a reservoir of

contemplation will blanket,

blessings light as

snowflakes, kisses up ahead.

Autumn Love Poetry

Gold coins high against gray sky

a still morning

deadly quiet.

A burning orb emerges

reminding me of love

illuminated mysterious

light when he peaks,

beauty unfolding

blooming like a yellow rose.

I close my eyes

feel warm rays

gently massaging

my skin in a cold

house, a cold fall

day fading into

winter outside leaves

swirling

like colorful ballerinas

in a dance toward

death mulches frozen soil

soon layered with

frosty powdered white

a world with beauty

that’s much more so

with brilliant billows

spontaneous blazing streaks

your fingers,

a love as bright as the sun.

Malvorrosa My Love

In a warm pink glow

the sun dips her head

below graceful palms

dark emerald hues

cascading foam

breathing rhythmic

stanzas

far away yet fresh

like a spring

water quenching

my heart’s thirst.

Your body beckons

your arms surround

mine like gentle

lapping waves

always in my head

heralding smiles

soon against your chest

resting eternal

comfort softly burning

a forever memory.
