The Captain


Let’s go Captain

Autumn awaits

The golden leaves turn

Halloween abates

My Best


displayed are venders best

My run was a different quest

I managed to improve my race

shaved 2 min per mile pace

Apple Farm


The old red barn

Has lost some charm

The bare cupboards

sound alarm .

As the day of plenty

Is now in the past

The smell of yesterday

Somehow still last

Handkerchiefs are gone

Crochet by hand

The tiny baskets

No longer stand

The apples still ripen

And the pears still fall

Mask are all worn

But not by all

Poets and artist

Will record this time

When people passed

And the need to be kind.

Crescent Moon


Sometimes I feel like Heidi.

The moon and planets meet me,

chilly autumn air, crickets scream,

leaves are browning autumn seen.

Sliding into a Midwest home run

when leaves will fall against the sun .

Our Moment


I was trying to run the hill

When stopped by waiting still

was a lovely deer curious of me.

And I looked closely to see,

the beauty of nature, a sight

a pause , and then took flight

Corn Moon


A short run under a full moon.

Foretelling of the Harvest Days

Fog and ghost in a purple haze

Winter chill will be here soon.

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.

Forgotten


Gray rustic canon

Hangs over winter’s river

Few could tell you why.

Many once gathered to fight

Forgotten, now a bleak sight .

Snow Moon


Full Snow Moon tonight

Climbing horizon in sight

A blue pastel light…
