Yuletide


Eve of Christmas

Time to pray

Time to say

A Yuletide

The Steps


We are not sure

We wait with uncertainty

We listen to sounds unheard

As the world still does not know

What challenges we face …

Stars


Among the stars

And ending night

My heart sores

My feet take flight

Alas another day is here

still left with our covid fear

But sustain us all we pray

So we will see another day.

Sunrise


Blue Moon


A full blue moon

Hangs just outside

The stars near by

All will hide

Behind the blue moon…

2020


A chilly blustery day as I warm myself

in front of early morning fire.

The dark mornings and quiet house

lends me to reflect.

We are in tumult times of discord,

turmoil and a horrible virus.

My prayer is somehow this changes

and we wake in early morning healed.

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.
