leave-taking


a leafless goodbye

to the blazing quilted sky

“I’m still here,” says God.


And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age

Jesus – Matthew 28:20b (NIV)

Autumn Rains


Like the autumn rains

on the thirsty, thirsty plains

hope springs eternal


and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s Love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Romans 5:5 (ESV)

Autumn Observations


with hummingbirds gone

and no trees filled with bird song

almost leafless rain.


There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV)

Still

just a few crickets

the call of a nearby owl

still, early morning

Fall Haiku


With the quaking leaves

I feel the northerly breeze

Fall’s game is afoot.

dragonfly

dragonfly. all eyes.

may I hold you in my hand?

but you dodge the fall


One possible interpretation:

The all-seeing dragonfly must sense that cooler weather—and his impending demise—are near. Yet he is still agile enough to keep me from catching him in my hand. He continues to dodge the fall—avoid the inevitable.
