full circle

Carpe Diem Full Circle #1-2016


deep rainbow colors
announcing autumn flight
seagulls fill the sky

cranes arrive for winter warmth
 cherry blossoms bid goodbye

love's own call
above sunflower fields
fills the blue sky

rainbow clouds
on butterfly wings
nectar drips

as once more the old men sing,
laugh and clink their mugs of beer
