24 September




twilight saw us bike riding down the little hill to the old dock

past the old couple sitting on their porch watching the sunset


 last of the summer cosmos 

growing up all wild like along the pathway 


by now the crisp autumn breeze has blown them over

petals whirling down onto the pavement and

 whisked down the little road to the beach


farewell my sweet cosmos

with your gay and graceful blossoms

nodding adieu


to the dying light 

of a last summer evening

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
