Red Truck


It caught my eye,

I could not see

the spirit of Christmas

was all over me .

I wondered why

and kept starring long.

As I heard a song,

the song was soft

and rode in on the snow.

It followed the wind

it was then I would know.

Christmas in the night

close but out of sight

we try to understand

a Christmas of love

swept through the land .

Red truck stood still

The dog did not bark

And the snow fell

Right before dark

Oak Tree


A small spinally trunk

Began to grow 

Over the years of spring storms and 

Seasons of winter’s ice 

It grew reaching 

And sometimes struggling 

To continue to strengthen 

Within the seasons

The birds singing into 

The branches of knurly 

Knots twisting into green 

Bouquets of leaves 

Nest began to take residence 

As the feathery friends found refuge 

Deep into the branches

The crescendo would begin

Darkness pulled by sunlight 

The shades of Morning 

Lifts into the spring of beginnings 

Quietness is overtaken by staccato songs

The Change


Blackeye peas

autumn breeze

rocking chair keeping pace

The sky has turned gray

the quietness of the day

calls the season’s race

I listen to know

It will soon start to snow

Winter will take its place.

The sounds of the universe


Brown Leaves


feet in the leaves

Dry and brown

Floating in breeze

A shuffling sound

The song of winter

Heralds in sync

Autumn will be gone

Winter’s snow in a blink

Christmas Painting


The beginning of my Christmas painting,

stay tune for the completion.

I hope it is as wonderful as I want it to be,

I hope it looks festive with all the Christmas trees.

Autumn


wet morning, rustic

leaves fall riding softly on

A breath of nature.

Morning Sky


the stars and planets

Still hang just above

To welcome us

In autumn mornings

The Leaves


Fall growing up,

we mostly looked down;

leaves shuffling around.

The colors of our coat

matched the colors blowing

as the wind chilled before snowing.

Somehow the wrapping circles of

the wind would play under our feet.

Captivated for a while it was an autumn treat .
