...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )

cold air crisp, clean, alive


Autumn Equinox

The earth turns
the sky slants
the sun recedes
cold comes
the cycle of recycle proceeds
as old dies into new
air conditioners are turned off
fans stored away
sweaters put on
day lessens
night exceeds
six months of spring summer fall
become six month winter
trees shed leaves to scratch the sky
mind’s mood broods on warmth
skin disappears
breath billows
the cold air crisp, clean, alive
fallen leaves crackle
as night eats day
to this music of migration
