feelings

Green Socks and Pink Sparkles


Her faithful wish each day

her green socks and pink sparkle shoes

Would always stay

On her feet looking down

She would see magic in her green socks

And sparkles all around

Her Mom would ask

Let’s take the shoes off for a while

It will help them last

The Princess looked away

Very surprised and shook her head

” no, thank you , not today”

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

Haiku


I run before sun

No one but sky and water .

Social distancing

Haiku


Out here where woodpeckers

Vibrate in the distant trees

Song birds my symphony

Sunset


The sea whispers

Breath comes in and then out

In a distance it sweet roar

Crescendos in a swell

Of soft breeze travels through

I feel tranquilizing sleep

We try to linger in the unknown

We are just too human

So I fall asleep with feelings

Twilight crest after

midnight storm gives way to verdant

grass, and hope appears …

a full moon light shines

just in sight, reflecting on

sleeping Queen Anne’s Lace

I ran almost 4 miles this morning and everywhere I ran were little pinwheels to bring awareness for child abuse .

1st Sunday of Advent


A wakeful glimpse

Into darkness that helps us

See past into the light

Autumn


autumnal Equinox gently arrives

warmth of the summer lost in the skies

Burnt orange and red are made of your dress

A sigh of relief now we will soon rest

From a summer of drought and too little rain

We will put it behind us; wait for seasons to change
