Nativity


Summoned under night

The refuge of the soul

Born just out of sight

Labored into hope

Carried on beast and straw

Promises to cope

Rich kings attend

To peer at wonder

As angels ascend

A dark cold crib

Stones for shelter

A mother’s bib

Breath of life

Cattle’s lullaby

Humanity’s strife

The word drawn

Near into promise

Christmas Painting


The beginning of my Christmas painting,

stay tune for the completion.

I hope it is as wonderful as I want it to be,

I hope it looks festive with all the Christmas trees.

The Pumpkin


A pumpkin with lights

For all souls night ,

soon the face will appear .

As the hallow sight

Draws near,

And only one light

Will be the moon

When it appears .

Eliza Strong


Run with the angels Eliza,

we will never forget.

The strength of your will,

the power of your step.

We will continue to run,

with the spirit of all who knew.

Why you slipped on your shoes

out for a morning renew.

Run  with the Angels Eliza,

we will push forward for you.

All the runners behind you,

will continue to tie up our 👟 shoes.

(Dedicated to :  Eliza Fletcher who lost her life recently just out for a run.)

God’s Thumbnail


Right outside my window is a sliver of a moon .

There is no fanfare , just hangs in quiet.

Looking like God’s thumbnail ,

As an iridescent light.

Running Feels Like My Church…


Cardinal


a male

And then

His female

Came upon

My deck

Looking for Aurora

Or Cinderella

” A dream is a wish

Your heart makes”

Only they know💕🦜

It is never easy but it is always worth the run.


School Days


The world is suffering

Covid has taken a toll

However do not tell

Our lil scholar

Trying to get on the honor roll.
