Weather

the world is changing
trees and grass and peace are gone
don’t leave me behind

 

Traffic

Claustraphobic crawl
cars obscure my journey’s end
discourteous traffic

 

Time

Monstrous crushing waves
melt the small snandcastle walls
tale of passing time

 

End of Day

Summer evening dusk
Stealing light form college halls
Gone home for the night

 

Rainfall

Window wet with rain
Drops fall from the cloudy sky
Distracting weather

 

Daylight

Summer morning rays
Chasing greyness from my room
Ubiquitous light

 

Road crossing

Broken traffic light
Pressing button time and time
Destination blocked

 

St. Patricks Day

Lively dancing fun
Crowds awash with streaks of green
Patricks day parade

 

Working in the Garden

Yellow fuzzy stripes
Collecting red flower nectar
Very busy bee
