Tea


I poured my tea

And let it rest upon the fireplace.

I sat close by to stay warm

The embers glow on my face.

The storm just close enough

to warn that it is near and cold.

Staying far away

the clouds are gray and bold.

I return to the warmth

and start to drink my tea

It is the safety of my home

that truly comforts me.

Past and Present


The gray stone,

Hundreds of years ago,

Others will pass

And I forgotten.

Time…

Ode to Autumn


I heard an owl outside my window
Breaking dark and morning flight
Then another answers soon after
Together harmony hooting quiet

A leaf is heard falling softly
Autumn speaks a gentle sound
Lagging song bird breaks the silence
And I am the only one around

Rustic red donned the tree tops
Top to bottom as they fall
Sweet farewell for winters coming
Leaving the trunk standing tall

A Sunday


My daughter and my 3 grandchildren and me at a local farm.

Grandchildren are the crowning glory of the aged; parents are the pride of their children.
–Proverbs 17:6

Haiku


My Grandson is life

A day without strife he looks

to clouds in the sky

Haiku


Sun reflects hope of

Early spring on the river

Seasons hope of change

Haiku


A frigid morning

A warm soft fire keeps vigil

To hope in this world.

Morning Sounds


Forest Run


A long quiet run

No souls or creatures about

Just sounds of silence .

December 2


Let me see if I

can add miles to my run

As Christmas draws near
