clear moon on cold night
traveler without shelter
shadows walk on snow

~~

clouds part as rain slows
garden seen under new light
stepping carefully

~~

empty tree branches
silhouetted in the mist
moon wakes as fog clears

~~

high above river
eagle soaring on updraft
cedar clings to cliff 

~~

stars bow to rainfall
leaves drink in welcome relief
hope alive in dreams

~~

the path of water
journey of many unknowns
each drop returning

~~~

Ken Gierke started writing poetry in his forties but found new focus when he retired.  This gave him new perspectives, which come out in his poetry, primarily in free verse and haiku.  He has been published at The Ekphrastic Review, Vita Brevis, Tuck Magazine,  and Eunoia Review. His website: RIVRVLOGR
