life or death is the question
-spring rain gives answer

sun rising, geese are moving
cherry-flower blossoms are near

black erasing white
on the farmer’s fallow field
-crows return to nest


Empty winter perches
cast blue shadows in the snow
mice tunnel below


Buds on the dogwood
waiting for springtime to burst
-caterpillar sleep

“Beyond The Sunset” Original Acrylic Artwork By Stuart Glazer* http://www.stuartglazer.com

In the brief moments of the sunsets glow,
As the sky moves from light to shadow.
Birds take to roost and conclude their chatters
While life take stock of all that matters.

Warm golden daylight gives way to darkened night,
A cold meditation of what went wrong or right.
Decisions made and placed aside,
Tomorrows coming, time to go inside.

“Ormsby – The Big O!”

Left Unseen

The wind wailed across the prairie
Giving voice to a darkened sky
Calling to those that seem unwary
Pay more attention to its cry.

Watch the clouds that sail in air
And move from dawn to dark.
Grey mists that shade lights glare
And travel heavens graceful arc.

Feel the earth men glorify
And run through fields of green
Where skies are blue and birds still fly
So much is left unseen.


Ormsby – A place to be
