A Morning Run

run in the morning

Create by noon and look to clock

Day ended too soon

I Forgot to Smile

I woke with a chilly cold autumn day.

Put on my running shoes 

and guzzled my coffee.

Stepped outside to start a jaunt

zipped my sweatshirt and 

double knotted my shoes.

I look upward to the black sky,

no stars, the storm left remnants 

of a cloudy morning and cool breeze.

Stepping one foot in front of the other

my body began to warm up. 

Soon the pace was decent enough 

I passed a few others, just a few

The world is not visited often 

with twilight runners. 

Dropped acorns the size of walnuts

lay trepidatiously in my path, 

hidden under leaves and branches.

I cautiously step into the places 

of shadows and lights, glare

by streetlights and car lights.

Finishing, I see reflection from the sun

just peeking into the dark horizon

giving way to a more cemented pace.

I see the car and start to slow down,

A feeling only a run can pass on,

accomplishment of the now. 

I walk to the car, feeling the breeze 

I look to see someone near and then I 

remember; to smile.

Young Goblins

The moon is out

The ghost about

In this soon to be

🎃 Halloween.

I run in fright

In the night

And hope to not be seen.

But the Casper winks

The pumpkins blink

As I pass the hallow team

They quartered it to make it seem possible 🏃🏻‍♂️😅💕

I finally made it to the black level !😅 I have to go 6000 miles to make it to the final level, VOLT.


Stretching so far

I try to see

the dark coal sky

hanging over me.

Constellations I recognize

spatter light in my eyes.

Laughing they drop

right before the horizon

turns crimson red.

I see the universe go on ahead.

Running in liquid sunrise

liquid sunrise glows

Into my morning run and back .

World exist and the beauty

Never lacks

I run,

more at peace, stronger and more enduring

let me always run into the new beginnings


autumnal change

Evolved earth sustains itself

Among the flowers

Food and a Run

Orion’s Belt

morning promises

Orion Belt hangs above

Pathway hangs over
