Favorite Quote:
"Never turn your back on Fear. It should always be in front of you, like a thing that might have to be killed." - Hunter S. Thompson


Cracked leaves
floating down
from fall trees.
Landing in the pond
with a grace I could never achieve.
When the light catches them just right
their colors look like they’re burning.
The sound of a motor
approaches on the nearby road.
Music pounding from the stereo;
sending blackbirds gliding in all directions.
