Apple Farm


The old red barn

Has lost some charm

The bare cupboards

sound alarm .

As the day of plenty

Is now in the past

The smell of yesterday

Somehow still last

Handkerchiefs are gone

Crochet by hand

The tiny baskets

No longer stand

The apples still ripen

And the pears still fall

Mask are all worn

But not by all

Poets and artist

Will record this time

When people passed

And the need to be kind.

Autumn Ritual


The fire is lit

The fall has come

The days grow short

At the setting sun

The witches howl

The children play

Sweaters are worn

For the chilly days

Time will rearrange

As seasons show off

The colors change

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg


Rest In Peace

And thank you

For all the years

You fought tirelessly

For equal rights

Under the law.

With integrity

And class,

Reservation

And fierceness

Of a warming fire

That would burn through time

Before and now and forever .

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

RIP

Crescent Moon


Sometimes I feel like Heidi.

The moon and planets meet me,

chilly autumn air, crickets scream,

leaves are browning autumn seen.

Sliding into a Midwest home run

when leaves will fall against the sun .

A Sunday


My daughter and my 3 grandchildren and me at a local farm.

Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children.
–Proverbs 17:6

Running


I thought of all the places

I thought of many paces

over the years I ran

In hopes i always can

It has been me

My constant …
