These are wonderful moments
The light is pigeon soft
gray as dusk
Clouds hover
in cumulus puffs

Red leaves
on the drying branches
of this fall
hang
without a quiver

Still air
silent
at this moment
as the eternal
hush

    The images of softness and quiet in this poem are so rich: pigeon soft, puffs of cloud hovering, leaves hanging without a quiver. Wonderful experience reading this poem. Thanks, Floyd!

    I was reading my writer friend Barbara Bonnet’s writing and as I skimmed through I saw your name. Congratulations.
