2020-11-17 – On Quest for Nest

thoughts upon the
tongue pass
peaceful

like my
confessions,

but not half as
sincere or
solemn,

and i do hope
mistakes

can grow their
own wings,
and..

i do wish, with eyes
widened and
willing
to..

find my nest
again..

before winter
gets in.

2020-10-18 – Rusty Harvest

i welcome another
rusty chestnut
harvest,

i hope you brought
your own pumpkin
and carver,

my edge is duller
than a debate,

sorry, i’ll cost you more
than scam sold
as rebate,

but if you could
go on not
hating
me

for just a little longer,
i say we take a
swing and
crack
up

this
winter.

2020-9-19 – Sunset Down

sunset bleeds vary,
some stains
simply
stun

others run tearful,
some just scowl
back scary,

in each crash of
cloud i envy

the sounds abound
in gales that
whisk us
down

to frozen ground,
hushed below
the snow
we go,

++++

never to be
found.

..until the meltdown.

2020-09-15 – Chestnut, Amber and Rust

is that maple
stripping for me?

already?

that’s hasty, we
only just
met,

though it does make me
blush in those toasted
chestnut tones
of amber..

++++

and rust, while
my roasting
chimney
puffs.
