Love

Sunrise


Blue Moon


A full blue moon

Hangs just outside

The stars near by

All will hide

Behind the blue moon…

Love at first sight

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.

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”

Running with Autumn


The church bells chime
About the time
The geese took flight
The cold wind blows
And the whistle sounds
In early morning night

My Best


displayed are venders best

My run was a different quest

I managed to improve my race

shaved 2 min per mile pace

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

RIP

Running


I thought of all the places

I thought of many paces

over the years I ran

In hopes i always can

It has been me

My constant …
