A Few Meditate on Peace as Nature Makes Her Art

Painter’s dabs of gold,

pale green, orange-red, and brown

shining glossy wet,

as if freshly stroked on canvas

by the artist’s dripping brush:

Tulsa’s Guthrie Green

in cold autumn rain,

backgrounding some six-and-ten

gathered to embrace

the warm soul of peace.

Ghost Song

Disembodied music

suddenly floating in

on wisp of chill night air:

indeterminate tune

without clear start or end,

from no one and nowhere.
