“Marvelous darling” Called the old witch Sitting on her doorstep As I ran down the street To find more red leaves “Into fall’s hands we rest” She murmured as I Ran back to show her Three deep maroon maple leaves I stared at the lovely Colors And imagined a world Where magic existed. “It does” … Continue reading Into Falls Hands by Liyona
Long have seeds been spread upon ground, In hopes that something familiar will arise. Water reach root while leaf reaches toward sky, My mind has turned away from this scene. Occupied attentions watched ignorant minds, While social foundations long cracked now crumble.

Wrap me in an October evening, And draw in the sky so gray. Fill my heart with a kaleidoscope of living colors, While tasting cold mountain air.

I can make my peace with these groaning bones, And find rest … Continue reading Autumn Reflection- Michael Erickson

Each day upon this shining scene, I see you staring across each green living thing. Fixed by your stare I stand upon a mountainside, Wind tossing clouds to and froe. I would reach out to you with a hand to hold, But you've already escaped this scene. Eyes now unfocused looking not beyond me, … Continue reading Hesitation in Gold- Michael Erickson
Gone are the grasses so lush and green. Their roots dive deep searching far below. As flaking gold letting each tree go. I leave this place with soul disheartened. Whispering Autumn speaking in an ear. Rustle heartstrings beneath falling tears. I long for home. Now surrounded by this shifting grief. I dare not go but … Continue reading Away From Home -Michael Erickson
