Demise


A tortured soul

An end summarized

By dark streets and alleys

And compromised.

His eagerness to please

He continued to write

And lost his soul

On a darkest night .

Blue Moon


A full blue moon

Hangs just outside

The starts near by

All will hide

Behind the blue moon…

Love at first sight


2020


A chilly blustery day as I warm myself

in front of early morning fire.

The dark mornings and quiet house

lends me to reflect.

We are in tumult times of discord,

turmoil and a horrible virus.

My prayer is somehow this changes

and we wake in early morning healed.

Fright


The little goblins have left their mark

their ghastly decor glows in the dark

They are prepared for the spooky nights,

witches and ghost and lots of frights.

The purple haze glows all about,

cider brews until it is stout

Soon the long waiting will abate

days grow shorter, darkness stays late.

So walk among the Halloween’s play

Come and see but do not stay.

It is meant to make you scared

for all the ‘trick or treats’ who dare.

Tom Sawyer


Tom Sawyer would be proud

Of the curiosity he shows

His wonder and discovery

A small rock he throws

Standing an looking

He thinks once more,

To collect another rock and

throws off to distant shore.

Dedicated to my Grandson

Ode to Autumn


I heard an owl outside my window
Breaking dark and morning flight
Then another answers soon after
Together harmony hooting quiet

A leaf is heard falling softly
Autumn speaks a gentle sound
Lagging song bird breaks the silence
And I am the only one around

Rustic red donned the tree tops
Top to bottom as they fall
Sweet farewell for winters coming
Leaving the trunk standing tall

Nature is rowdy this morning
