Aster Blossoms and Orion

Comment

“Blood Moon Eclipse” – Whitney Avenue – Wilkinsburg, PA

Autumn… Orion… Wind from the north…
Guide me to the sky and let the stars come forth…
Aster blossoms purple… Basil sets seed…
Mighty trees get naked and poppy pods bleed…

Bask in the glow of the warm harvest sun…
This is the point summer and winter are one…
Dreamscapes of neutral memories terraced…
Nightmares will scare us… Pray to Polaris…

The end is near… But the worst has passed…
Surprised to find that any of us could last…
Green leaves fade to a bright shade of rust…
After the autumn leaves decay into dust…

Under the blue sky… Floating balls of cotton…
The scent of the breeze is of fallen fruit rotten…
Green grass fading… Goldenrod swaying…
This is a moment in time worth replaying…

Bumblebee Climbing – When the Sun is Rising

BumbleOnVetch

Bumblebee on Clover” – Hamnett Place Community Garden – Wilkinsburg, PA

Together we care for the soil… We sing praises to the sky…
We give drugs to the low… Yet we take drugs to get high…
Another day of gray skies on a humid august morning…
If the birds stop singing we will listen to their warning…
Rain is clearly on the way… Dark clouds are on the horizon…
When the weather breaks the morning sun will guide them…
The sun is my guide… I will follow it away from the moon…
When the sun eventually sets our minds begin to swoon…
A steady soul prepares us for the chance to float away…
The ground we plant beneath our feet the reason why we stay…
Wait beneath the thunderhead and you’ll eventually find…
Water falls and thunder calls to those who waste their time…

Warm Glow – Home for Lunch

The warm glow from the sky…
Radiates off my cool skin…
Washes away the depression…
Cleanses me of sin…

Dreaming of forests and lakes…
Longing for the rivers and streams…
Climbing up the tallest mountain…
These are my simple dreams…

So embrace the perfect heavens…
Take time to hug a tree…
Run through the endless flowers…
On your way to swim the sea…

Slow clouds black out the sun…
Shape shifting across the blue…
Creating a show of endless images…
A show that’s just for me and you…

Reincarnation

SelfPortraitDye

“Self Portrait” – © chriscondello 2013 – Wilkinsburg, PA – Muddy puddle and food coloring… Reflection…

Reincarnation of life…
We are born and we die…
Some of us die many deaths…
Not physically but spiritually…

Some of us choose to grow…
Some of us choose to die…
But we will all change…
Based on our own experience…

Tear down preconception…
Strive to be the exception…
