Love

Red Truck


It caught my eye,

I could not see

the spirit of Christmas

was all over me .

I wondered why

and kept starring long.

As I heard a song,

the song was soft

and rode in on the snow.

It followed the wind

it was then I would know.

Christmas in the night

close but out of sight

we try to understand

a Christmas of love

swept through the land .

Red truck stood still

The dog did not bark

And the snow fell

Right before dark

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.)

Ice Cream and Volkswagons


I remember those days

we would eat ice cream

and never gain a pound.

Going to the Tasty Freeze

ordering chocolate on chocolate.

Sitting at the booth with my sister,

talking to our new friends

and laughing.

So easy to laugh then at everything;

even ourselves .

The Love of an Uncle


The love of an uncle

Just to be there

In the middle

Of confusion he listens

And cares .
