    I.

    ask me of my dreams
    upon this summer’s dying day
    and listen to my heart
    whisper of
    joy

    for the autumn is coming
    on silent colorful wings
    bringing an end to the endless days

    finally I shall fly
    through the crisp night
    and soar on the breath of my dreams

    II.

    yes woman time grows slow
    as trees turn gold
    cry with the winter rain
    for the summer child you once were
    night follows like a silent friend
    upon dreams of magical music
    whispering snowy songs
    of peace and home

    III.

    The summer baked grain
    rolls
    slowly
    in the warm breeze
    tasting of yesterday

    the sunset bleeds
    into the leaves
    of tired trees

    lazy car headlights echo
    the firefly's last
    light

    as I follow the setting sun westward
    trying futilely to hold on to today

    Beautiful peace.

    I've been a fan of your work since
    the first piece I read.

    Thanks for sharing your gift with us. :)
