A VIEW FROM THE PARAPET
A view from the parapet
A sky formed of live and let
Horizon marked at twenty miles
Pathway obstacles of twenty stiles
The sea an option to beget
A golden moon of no regret
Perspective met a trillion wiles
A soul be made and let to set
Tens of thousands of insects performed a symphony, an elaborate musical composition passionately orchestrated, resonating, familiar and strange, persisting, unwavering notes upon notes – the last hurrah – as I strolled along the cooly illuminated cement walk, to view, in an early evening wan indigo sky, the golden orb of a Harvest Moon. Pale purply hued shadows decorated the reflecting surface of the blonde satellite presenting the appearance of a face: still, mute, suspended, shedding an ochre glow, casting mine moon shadow: casting a shadow for all, for all mindful of the rare reverie.
The Phantom Of Her Blog
Her blog appeared with the ping of my phone, I transpierced, mesmerized, engulfed, navigating my way round the phantom, lifted, carried deep into the well, emerging, prancing over catwalks, springing toward the decaying spiral of dripping eloquence, up, up to the dome overlooking all that can be seen; an ancient river of wisdom.

THE BEGINNING OF THE END
Sitting alone at the corner of the bar, tickling the stem of a globular red wine glass with an index digit, contemplating complexities, gazing out across the nearly empty restaurant, through the expanse of plate glass windows, infinite pin oak leaves, adorned with their arrays of auburn, amber and magenta, fluttered and skittered slowly and quietly along a diagonal breeze, in a warm, misting, silver grey atmosphere – the last day of October.
A silver-gray balmy breezy day. The winds are gusting to twenty-six miles per hour and the temperature is hovering warmly in the seventies. With rain threatening, the bleached white walks are already stained pink from moisture. The wood and it’s canopy of chartreuse, ochre, burnt orange and scarlet foliage are whipping, bending to and fro in an energetic Watusi of a dance. The leaves, rustling a louder song, sing interrupting the softer frenetic chorus of crickets and remaining insects chirping the last symphony for the season, the last hurrah.
