Refreshing


I started out cold

And began to run

Right before the rising sun

As I ran I did not mind

The chill turned into

A refreshing time

Of lights and trees

And autumn sounds

While Golden leaves

Fell on the ground

Running with Autumn


The church bells chime
About the time
The geese took flight
The cold wind blows
And the whistle sounds
In early morning night

Chilly Morning


Steam climbs in harmony

With the flicker from the fire

Autumn chill is lingered now

I challenge my will to inspire

A run …

The Captain


Let’s go Captain

Autumn awaits

The golden leaves turn

Halloween abates

The Pumpkin


A magic orange, a pick’s delight,

An Autumn prize, a beautiful sight.

A lot of love was chosen that day

among the gourds and leaves and hay.

Which one to chose and take home

a prize that stands out alone.

Now it sits with lights adorned

Right next to the dish with candy corn.

Autumn Wish


If you follow my blog

And I hope you do

I want to thank you !

Autumn has come

The leaves are turning

Covid 19 is still churning

Politics raging

Nothing to do

But vote, it depends on you

We will still wake

On November the 4th

We will still as people go forth

With a run and a prayer

And awaking to hope

Our people will survive and cope

Green and orange

River still flows

🏃‍♀️ Runners still forge and know

If we get up

And go on

The road is there

To make it a strong

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.
