The Artist Searches for Meaning

Artist greets the grey day

Rain rare and precious is expected

Mountain silhouette shrouded in mist

Sky a container

Stuffed with white cotton balls

Blue bird comes to the courtyard

Saunters to the feeder

Not up to his liking

Lilting a song of lyric disappointment

Leaves on extended wings

Tiny glittering pools stand on asphalt

He is gone

All is silent

Artist lifts her eyes to the mountain

Yellow and orange appear among the evergreens

Colors of autumn

All is sensuous rich

In amusement

She whispers alliterations to herself

“Blue bird bellows sorrow”

She flips her tresses

And continues peering at the exterior world

As she searches within for the  meaning

September 15, 2012 Autumn Challenge The River Journal

The lane ahead
Reaches out to me
Beckons my travel
From my vantage
High above the canyon
I see sunshine and shadows
Wait for me

Life is like that
Don’t you see
A cornucopia
Full to overflow
Trees dressed in color
Geese fly south in a V
Step on a crack
Break your Mother’s back

Wild meadow asters
Bloom purple along roadside
Sunflowers and chemisa-yellow
Herald change
Fall is here
Apples red and ready
An invitation to hungry bears

Sunshine and shadows
Joy and sorrows
Days of change
Marked on a calendar
Time of deep feelings
Preparation & expectation

Autumn is here
