Stars


Among the stars

And ending night

My heart sores

My feet take flight

Alas another day is here

still left with our covid fear

But sustain us all we pray

So we will see another day.

Sunrise


Autumn Run


I looked at the trees,

watched the leaves fall

How lovely it is

In spite of it all.

The tensions are high

about wrong or right.

The people have voted

and we grumble in spite

However the trees’ colors

of burnt orange and gold

the breeze helps them fall

and the trees just get old

Blue Moon


A full blue moon

Hangs just outside

The stars near by

All will hide

Behind the blue moon…

Love at first sight


Fog


Autumn wears many faces

As the mornings lift

Into fog and mist.

Leaves now shuffle in sound

Dry enough to drop

Below the mothering tree.

Cool breeze will make way

To a warmer day

Reluctant to begin.

Black walnuts fall below

Your feet in surprise

Causing this runner to skip

By so not to fall…

Sun


I run 🏃‍♀️ below and above

the sun’s beginnings.

The dewed fog moistens drying fields

and glistens with prisms reflecting.

The quiet is loud as my jaunt shuffle

interrupts nature’s morning’s stage.

An uninvited guest, I slip by,

pause,

sun presses my face with warm rays

as the glare squints my eyes to see,

and I am ushered on.

Refreshing


I started out cold

And began to run

Right before the rising sun

As I ran I did not mind

The chill turned into

A refreshing time

Of lights and trees

And autumn sounds

While Golden leaves

Fell on the ground
