Circles

Anxieties lost
And new happiness found
Transitory joy

Circles

Old truths ebb and flow
Memories in clouded mind
Washing you away

Circles

Blazing black timbers
Red orb comforted in decline
Sunset seen through tree

Circles

An abandoned home
Broken timber, mud and grass
Bird nest on bare bough

Circles

I open the door

upon superstition

by going to church.

Circles

The cavalier charged

bravely into the thicket

to retrieve his ball.
