She Sheds Her Clothes Again

Green leaves begin their dying now
a few last bursts of summer's fling
before the chill nights ring the bell
and usher in the fall.

This night, the moon will rise 
a full and a luscious orange globe
above the tree tops you can see her
ablaze like Aztec gold.
The Hunter's Moon, they call her
at the Autumn's Equinox
heralding earth's proclivity
to shed her clothes.

The leaves will grow heavy
when the rains come
and they will come hard they say this year
and merciless for awhile until
the Sun decides to shine again and bring
the great north winds along to whistle.

Together they will spin their palette
splashing magic colors twirling
floating feathered leaves to cover
grass and moss and once again
the earth renews.

Starlight Symphony

Universe Pictures, Images and Photos

Song of man
lilt of woman's voice
the laughter of a child
like molecules of stardust

See! . . they float out
towards the heavens
even as they leave our lips.

Do not fear
that they are lost or vanished
for this can never be
not if these were born of love.

Love lives on eternal
every speck of it
every drop of goodness
that fills the  golden cup.

Our words, our songs
and all the sounds of life
once uttered
stay forever sacred
and though not composed of matter
they have life  . . . that time can never touch

for they transform into the
echoes, timbre chimes and bells,
the woodwinds of the Milky Way
the strings and timpani of comets
soaring by . . .

they continue their concertos
in the dark and fertile silence
of the cosmos
where the Earth spins
her glorious symphony for the stars.
