Indian Summer–a tanka

I need to burn this
embered red on simple green–
how frost mimics fire
the shades of burning, smokeless
kissed light on the edge of leaves.


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
