Hurried


I ran this morning

At the end of night

Just before the sun appeared

And as I did the time passed

As though we were at a race

I kept my balance and kept

My sight and did not lose the pace.

Trying to get ready for the “Stars and Stripes “


Hospital Hill Run


I love the outings of just moving

Truth


I look upon my pen

And dig deep within

So I will know to say

The writing for today

I call upon the muse

the words I hope to chose .

I knew them all so well

While running in the spell

Of early morning light

At the end of a long night .

A Morning Run


after a Sunday fun.

Now it is time to work

And remember …

Footsteps


I heard footsteps ever so quiet

They carried with them

a world of might

sounding of innocence

and tomorrow’s hope

silent the wind,

as it whirls above…

Protect this wonder

this shadow,

this child of love…

Strawberry Moon


Strawberry Moon a

runner’s delight. Hangs above

the starless night.

The poets and sage wakes up

to view, the promise to see

the pink settled hue.

Summer’s Eve


the golden sun rises

Into the morning’s heat

As the world slows down.

Ice Cream and Volkswagons


I remember those days

we would eat ice cream

and never gain a pound.

Going to the Tasty Freeze

ordering chocolate on chocolate.

Sitting at the booth with my sister,

talking to our new friends

and laughing.

So easy to laugh then at everything;

even ourselves .
