fairies’ circle art
set mushroom rings in meadows
pensive compass scene

dreams once lived in nature’s sites
her mysteries of the night

Golden loaves of bread
that rise in grandma’s woodstove
served with fall preserves

Smokey farmhouse memories
of breakfast conversations

Autumn Wind 1977 By Leonardo Nierman Original Painting Oil on Canvas https://www.artbrokerage.com/Leonardo-Nierman/Autumn-Wind-1977-37×49-83698

Swirling autumn breeze
breathes with two seasons power
-earth and sky unite

First seed and soil marry
then to bed in winter’s ice

Warrior’s Death

Paintings from Norse mythology Peter Nicolai Arbo, Valkyrie’s Death Oil on canvas 1880

Hero’s tears tumble
on lips pursed in dying breath
-life’s struggle over

noble effort undertook
cost of honor bravely paid
