creative ramblings & reverie

Sunday, September 21, 2014


Two stumps, couchant
and grandly gnarled
as oriental lions
in a den of autumn oaks.

Shade imminent
and closing in,
like year and years.

The far west campus
readying again
for its more serious purpose,

the pause of summer
done, ephemeral as summers past;

these great truncated beasts,
creatures of time itself, laying
a heavy paw over
the paper-lightness of its bones.
