Leaf Dagger

[Photos in this post taken using the film recipe Ektachrome]

Sunlight falls through the branches of the redwood trees

Lands like a dagger on the leaf’s heart

Gold blazes on a bed of dead leaves

Cold Creek Crossing

Redwood trees shade the crossing, cold water sparkles,

No pause in the flow.

They rush over the creek, hikers – young and old,

No pause in the flow.

Sun reaches for the stream blocked by red trunks and green needles.

No pause in the flow.
