September – week 2


autumn moon

stained with the colours

of creativity


the bitter truth

this one acorn on the path…

Still Green Moon


with each swing

of the seat

a spider’s web


and retracts



you’re gone     you’re gone

and yet…

catching this gossamer

what’s left of the light


relentless rain…

then the winding road

to a sun-filled valley


untimely cool

she is dead — yet still, the scent

of honeysuckle


this week’s post is dedicated to

Svetlana Marisova

17th March 1990 – 7th September 2011
