Autumn Song

BY DANTE GABRIEL ROSSETTI

Know’st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
         Laid on it for a covering,
         And how sleep seems a goodly thing
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf?
And how the swift beat of the brain
Falters because it is in vain,
         In Autumn at the fall of the leaf
         Knowest thou not? and how the chief
Of joys seems—not to suffer pain?
Know’st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the soul feels like a dried sheaf
         Bound up at length for harvesting,
         And how death seems a comely thing
In Autumn at the fall of the leaf?

Been Here Before — A Valentine Message   Leave a comment

I’ve been here before
known this place
walked this floor

lived here alone
before, I knew you.

You became my 
photographic muse
an afternoon delight
laying on a bed of red
shadows of natural light.

Blue, blue windows
opened to the sky
clouds move by
casting moments
to dream by.

Morning would come
roosters crowing
at the break of dawn
sheets still damp
moments to live by.

Imagine yesterday’s
times we’ve shared
becoming memories
fueling our tomorrows
filled with timeless love.

Now, everyone can see
you belong to me
knowing it’s so
hard to love, still
we share the look
of satisfaction.

Desert Oasis
Shaded escape from the heat —
Nature’s waterhole.

Sometimes drying up
Before the monsoon season —
Desert high and dry.

Can’t Wait!   Leave a comment

The two images in this collage were taken January 31, 2012, in the Tucson Mountains west of Tucson. We haven’t had a chance to hike in the Tucson Mountains yet this year, but the wildflowers tend to be earlier there compared to the Santa Catalina Mountains where we do most of our hiking. Since I can’t wait till we have a chance to hike in the Tucson Mountains this spring, I’m sharing there from five years ago. (Click Here For Flickr Slideshow)
