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 .

Let me see if I

can add miles to my run

As Christmas draws near
