Trees: Sunset and Sunrise

Yesterday, I listened to music and watched the day end from my study window. Usually, I write about the morning light. I thought about the evergreens and their presence through the days and seasons.

Two haiku from my archives:

in golden light

wind uplifting
the branches of trees

Poems and Photo

pink clouds
span the horizon
seagulls take flight
stretching to read
new books


afternoon light
blue-grey skies
and water

give them a stage
to shine


another day
of grace
settling down
towards sunset
seagulls rest on water


“another day” was published in Sea Bandits, edited by Aubrie Cox (2012), at YAY WORDS!

as birds quietly sing

losses in life
low setting sun
through branches of trees
now rises again
as birds quietly sing

(Sunset . . . Sunrise from Poems From Psalms And Nature, 2010).


Psalm 1: 3 (KJV) :

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.


patterns on my floor
moving with the breeze
sun from the West
branches of leaves
