Corridors of Green


corridors of green
through a forest of pines
each tree seldom seen

This is the road I travel each day to and from work. It is amazing to witness the transformation of the trees as the seasons change. From autumn’s colors to the barren winter and back to the brilliance of spring and early summer. Live deliberately and have a blessed day!

It’s Christmas Time!


It’s Christmas time
From rainy overcast days
To forever blue skies
And clear sunny days

It’s Christmas time
Towering evergreens stand tall
They cover the land
Where snow scarcely falls

It’s Christmas time
Upon the mountain peaks
Lying in silent repose
Their transcendence we seek

It’s Christmas time…
In the Pacific Northwest

Yellow Brilliance



Around the bend, on a narrow road.

Comes the end, of all we have known

The colors glow, in the autumn twilight.

The brilliant yellows, pierce the night.

Poem 22 of 31 for October Poetry Writing Month, #OctPoWriMo. A rainy gray day in the Pacific Northwest has me thinking of sunshine, warmth and color. Let your light shine! ~M
