Summers Last Gasp

October Colorsummers last gasp
a shot fired into the gray
as autumn covers the land
and the seasons change
blooming in the midst
a flower of singular beauty
struggles against the cold
shining forth its glory
yellow shafts of sunlight
send echos into the night
for tho winter approaches
spring is never far away

The Fires of Spring

art transcends through seasons of change

for your eyes, heart and soul

the fires of spring

the drums of summer

the death of fall

the stars of winter

shining a light into the dark

of humanities heart

under a dark sky of forgotten lullaby’s

art captures hearts unaware

for our eyes, heart and soul

fires warm the coldest places

drums beat a cadence of love

death brings new beginnings

stars silently pierce the night

always shining a light into the dark

art is the beckoning beauty

a shot of hope into the black

a small spark of light

a promise of grace and mercy

a voice that speaks of love

sustaining hearts with visions

art for your eyes, heart and soul in

the fires of spring

the drums of summer

the death of fall

the stars of winter

may art always shine a light into the dark
