first colored leaves 
boatmen on the river
ship their oars

    interesting perception, paul;
    i perceive fall of the year. albeit, why "ship one's oars ahead" (play on words), or is this the proverbial "up a river without a paddle".


    nightfall
    stillness in the air -
    my thoughts flourish

    to the death chamber
    caged chickens
    on the lorry

    River waters dance
    Red and gold.
    The dragonfly heads home.

    autumnal evening rains
    spiraling ...
    myriad of insects

    moored racing shell
    dead leaves float down the river

    green the evergreen--
    forms cross blue skies
    towering white thunderhead
