Love

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.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg


Rest In Peace

And thank you

For all the years

You fought tirelessly

For equal rights

Under the law.

With integrity

And class,

Reservation

And fierceness

Of a warming fire

That would burn through time

Before and now and forever .

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

I thought of all the places

I thought of many paces

In hopes i always can

It has been me

My constant …

My Son and My Run


He laughs and sings

And dances on stage hoping to

Distract a world at rage .

Infinity


I walk among ancient sands

Yet walk as if it was new

The winds blow at my side

And I only think of you.

Shadows


Only shadows seen

Many stories have I read

Of shadows to dread

However these are promise

Of the morning ahead

Fairy Dust


If you wake in the morning

while all the world sleeps

you will see the crystals of the fairy dust.

They were left during the night

To light their way

just in sight

as the moon bows

the twilight shows it’s veil

Sister


I woke to listen

to a long time friend; sister.

She is on her way

to the hospital today

to be at her husband side.
