Wind whipped lake
one yellow maple leaf
riding the waves

    one yellow leaf
    spirals quietly--
    a new cat toy

    weeping birch
    floating in the puddles
    yellow tears

    beach love making
    the wave keep
    lifting itself

    Wind ,waves,up and down...
    my life -only a faded leaf
    at the mercy of fate

    plane after plane
    falling from the evening sky
    misty rain

    flickering sunlight
    fallen leaf on still waters
    a dragonfly lands

    silent dragonflies
    dart among waterlilies
    the autumn wind sighs

    evening walk --
    betwixt the bare limbs
    tennis shoes on a string
