Autumn Tea

The sunset color of this morning’s tea

in its clear glass is a filter

where I can view this day’s end.

In oak, cedar and maple liquid hues,

I see early winter as autumn again.

From Distant Mountains

In a steamy cloud, lotus flowers arrive.

Out of season, this cool autumn morning,

drinking these pink flowers I am momentarily

here and in your summer water garden.

My hand holding your hand and heat.

Night Cafe

Not late, but late enough for  sleep.

People still drinking their coffee and tea,

ending their day or starting their night.

The child speaking French to her father

said Goodnight to only me. Only me.
