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.

late Autumn kinky nocturne

night   clouds: backdrop for
the naked trees’ shadow dance.
moon and I: voyeurs.

sleepless, watching the heavens at 1 a. m.

wind-blown coracle
westward sails by stars half-dimmed:
gibbous moon, clear sky

NOTES: A) ‘CIA’ is used here to represent the now highly politicized “intelligence” services of the U.S. Government.
B) The main reasons Clinton lost are:
i.] the ridiculous, antidemocratic Electoral College system, and
ii.] voter suppression efforts by the Republican masters of such in key Republican-controlled states.
