Time

Nativity


Summoned under night

The refuge of the soul

Born just out of sight

Labored into hope

Carried on beast and straw

Promises to cope

Rich kings attend

To peer at wonder

As angels ascend

A dark cold crib

Stones for shelter

A mother’s bib

Breath of life

Cattle’s lullaby

Humanity’s strife

The word drawn

Near into promise

Red Truck


It caught my eye,

I could not see

the spirit of Christmas

was all over me .

I wondered why

and kept starring long.

As I heard a song,

the song was soft

and rode in on the snow.

It followed the wind

it was then I would know.

Christmas in the night

close but out of sight

we try to understand

a Christmas of love

swept through the land .

Red truck stood still

The dog did not bark

And the snow fell

Right before dark

The Change


Blackeye peas

autumn breeze

rocking chair keeping pace

The sky has turned gray

the quietness of the day

calls the season’s race

I listen to know

It will soon start to snow

Winter will take its place.

Christmas Painting


The beginning of my Christmas painting,

stay tune for the completion.

I hope it is as wonderful as I want it to be,

I hope it looks festive with all the Christmas trees.

Autumn


wet morning, rustic

leaves fall riding softly on

A breath of nature.

The Leaves


Fall growing up,

we mostly looked down;

leaves shuffling around.

The colors of our coat

matched the colors blowing

as the wind chilled before snowing.

Somehow the wrapping circles of

the wind would play under our feet.

Captivated for a while it was an autumn treat .

Morning


A silver moon

An early icy run 🏃‍♀️

Temperatures drop

A day begun

The Pumpkin


A pumpkin with lights

For all souls night ,

soon the face will appear .

As the hallow sight

Draws near,

And only one light

Will be the moon

When it appears .
