September 2021


The year in balance:
equinoctial full moon,
night as bright as day.



Rain – for a change…

Drainpipe Rhapsody.
Trees and streams, the orchestra,
Rain, the composer.



Barely perceptible alteration…

Gentle transition:
Autumn shifts it up a notch.
Summer relaxes.



First signs: swallows gathering…

Like abacus beads,
lined swallows count down the days…
It won’t be long now.
