who can tell
from which tree they come 
autumn wind

    VERY NICE! Classically understated,
    without even naming the real subject of the
    poem: falling/fallen autumn leaves.
    What a unique way of capturing this moment.
    I think this one is something very special!!

    grapevines Santorini, Greece
    wrapped snuggly round and round
    heavy winds, arid island

    Yes, I like it too, Paul. I certainly don't pretend to know from which tree I've come, although I think there's a small town in North Dakota called Fromwhich ;o)

    skeleton in the trash
    was the fisherman up ...
    before dawn

    if goings of a leaf are veiled, how much more the path
    of the man...the ways of his heart...and where
    the wind shall take him.


    we, the leaves
    both at the mercy of mystery--
    these ways of the wind.

    new man
    in the house
    teenage son's deepening voice

    autumn wind
    child is gathering crimson leaves
    for today's bouquet

    dark skies
    above the oak trees ...
    rising waxing moon
