As I read Poe’s Chagrin
Captured Raven mystic within
Dark night knocking and blows the wind.
The spooky shadow he does write
Among the eve of hallows fright
Years go by and he is gone
Yet his words this night belong
Quotes always the raven more
Among the dark hallows yore.

run in the morning
Create by noon and look to clock
Day ended too soon

I woke with a chilly cold autumn day.
Put on my running shoes
and guzzled my coffee.
Stepped outside to start a jaunt
zipped my sweatshirt and
double knotted my shoes.
I look upward to the black sky,
no stars, the storm left remnants
of a cloudy morning and cool breeze.
Stepping one foot in front of the other
my body began to warm up.
Soon the pace was decent enough
I passed a few others, just a few
The world is not visited often
with twilight runners.
Dropped acorns the size of walnuts
lay trepidatiously in my path,
hidden under leaves and branches.
I cautiously step into the places
of shadows and lights, glare
by streetlights and car lights.
Finishing, I see reflection from the sun
just peeking into the dark horizon
giving way to a more cemented pace.
I see the car and start to slow down,
A feeling only a run can pass on,
accomplishment of the now.
I walk to the car, feeling the breeze
I look to see someone near and then I
remember; to smile.
The moon is out
The ghost about
In this soon to be
I run in fright
In the night
And hope to not be seen.
But the Casper winks
The pumpkins blink
As I pass the hallow team
I finally made it to the black level !😅 I have to go 6000 miles to make it to the final level, VOLT.
Stretching so far
I try to see
the dark coal sky
hanging over me.
Constellations I recognize
spatter light in my eyes.
Laughing they drop
right before the horizon
turns crimson red.
I see the universe go on ahead.

liquid sunrise glows
Into my morning run and back .
World exist and the beauty
more at peace, stronger and more enduring
let me always run into the new beginnings
The places I have been
And the places I have seen
Has been good for my soul
And washed me clean
