Rainbow over my bus stop

Northwest autumn

A coat alone serves against the weather

scarf and hat left behind on a chair

soft rain, fresh on the tongue

Deep breaths

Submerged we make our way

forward, backward in the dark

in vain hope of safe harbor from the gloom.

stands ready in the south
to lead his charge homeward.

morning star
herald of dawn
in the east rises
proclaiming day.
