Autumn Ride Under Evening Sky

Saffron sky scatter past cerulean silence

Surreptitious sunbeams steal past sentry clouds

Wheels rolling on pavement,

Heart beating in chest,

Invisible wind crying wordlessly,

Landing crows flapping cacophonously,

Some cawing, others mute

I add to this broken silence

Ringing bells for the unwary

Unwarily, I ride on nature’s stage

Adding to her brief symphony of evening
