painted skies
masked by hustle of city
heading home


Wispy kings and queens
silhouette an amber sky
as I walk home 


in the twilight
elm leaves glow
clouds blush


as the last leaves
sail gracefully across the sky
the pine waves goodbye


Amidst the shadows
winged dreams take flight


in the fading light
elm leaves quiver
squirrel chides me


  1. This is a great series ---
    I could really relate to the last one, though. There's a spot not too far from my favorite tree (the one that looks like an Ent!) where the squirrel *always* gives me the dickens when I pass him/her at dusk. :)
