Haiku


a full moon light shines

just in sight, reflecting on

sleeping Queen Anne’s Lace

Haiku


Morning sun rises

My soul’s shade is lightened now

No rain weigh it down .

A Loaf of Bread


It was a loaf of bread,
a gift of love

she struggled to say
It is all I have

times were hard
her family at risk

she came to dinner
from a dark abyss

picked as a flower
from spring she left

stormed in the winds
and soon was adrift

It was a loaf of bread
it was all she had

she asked please
take it, and quietly cried

Unaware


we will both grow old,
our youth wasted in time

rusted planks of life
jutting out

feeling the days gone past
looking for a sign

we will understand how
little time we tout

until now, we look and see
our hands and body weathered

I will smile and feel the
glow of our youth

even though the shifts
are tethered

Awake


A day of celebration:

“Now I a two-fold vision see…
May God us keep
From single vision, and Newton’s sleep.”— William Blake

Haiku


Green and blue hues stay

In morning contemplation

Feeling thankfulness

Haiku


People ask me why?

Why do you run 🏃‍♀️ when you can?

Universal peace…

The Wind is Speaking


The wind is speaking
The morning night
A whispered breeze
A rhythmic quiet

The wind is speaking
A gentle wake
The limbs carry
The boughs break

Stars hang
A sparrow sings
A morning sighs

Afternoon moments

Gather memories of you

Grandma’s kept secrets
