Matchmaker

Hearts turn to the sky

With the thought of love in mind

Trusting in the orb

Seeking help to find the mate

That the harvest moon shall bring

Fall Festivities

Rejoice with autumn

Mother Earth’s reclamation

Trees give up the gold

Leaves delight, part of the dance

Flora desires to sleep

Et Al

You can laugh or cry

Or just sit and wonder why

But still, time goes by

The way you spend your moments

Will determine your minutes

Cutis Cartography

Her life was mapped out

Via lines on her person

Charting many years

Experience left its marks

Routes traceable throughout time

Voices Off

There are messages

In all communication

Between earth and sky

We can only tune into

That with which we resonate
