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…

“Dutchman’s Breeches” – Dicentra cucullaria – Frick Park – Pittsburgh, PA

God bless the earth we walk on…
Bless the plants and the trees…
Take care of our flowers…
That attract the bees…

Put a shovel in the soil…
And our hands in the ground…
While we listen to the birds…
Sing magnificent sounds…

The air around us is fresh…
And the breeze is warm…
A sure sign of spring…
When honeybees swarm…

They visit your flowers…
Then they’ll come to mine…
Reminding us that…
Everything will be just fine…
