Ruffles and Flourishes

Hail, Master of Slurs!
Will you learn to be a mensch?
Oh, world full of doubts…

after snow

full moon near setting:
bright pearl about to vanish
below earth’s cold brim

till this very day (for Lan)

gleaming in her eyes
such peace, happiness and love
till this very day

genius loci

near year’s end I stand
beneath the oak shorn of leaves
dreaming stars unseen

peering at the sky while walking

blue breaking through white
and gray clouds roiling    winter
brawling in the wind

illusion

seen from this angle:
candle’s flame set on a snag:
haze-encircled moon

out walking – late Fall snow squall

snowflakes blithely drop
on hedges’ small mixed green leaves.
a hush too descends.
