Time


A quick jaunt in early morning

Time was on my side

A holiday wish with all our warnings

Good wishes do abide 🙏

2020


A chilly blustery day as I warm myself

in front of early morning fire.

The dark mornings and quiet house

lends me to reflect.

We are in tumult times of discord,

turmoil and a horrible virus.

My prayer is somehow this changes

and we wake in early morning healed.

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

Autumn Wish


If you follow my blog

And I hope you do

I want to thank you !

Autumn has come

The leaves are turning

Covid 19 is still churning

Politics raging

Nothing to do

But vote, it depends on you

We will still wake

On November the 4th

We will still as people go forth

With a run and a prayer

And awaking to hope

Our people will survive and cope

Green and orange

River still flows

🏃‍♀️ Runners still forge and know

If we get up

And go on

The road is there

To make it a strong

Autumn Ritual


The fire is lit

The fall has come

The days grow short

At the setting sun

The witches howl

The children play

Sweaters are worn

For the chilly days

Time will rearrange

As seasons show off

The colors change

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg


Rest In Peace

And thank you

For all the years

You fought tirelessly

For equal rights

Under the law.

With integrity

And class,

Reservation

And fierceness

Of a warming fire

That would burn through time

Before and now and forever .

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

RIP

Out here where woodpeckers

Vibrate in the distant trees

Song birds my symphony

A frigid morning

A warm soft fire keeps vigil

To hope in this world.

Time arrives quickly

It is pretty amazing

A peace of knowing …
