Women


Love at first sight

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.

A Hero Has Passed


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

Breaking Through


Make every day count

Break through gravity holding back

Each tomorrow shines

Haiku


I run before sun

No one but sky and water .

Social distancing

Haiku


the birds wake with song

Cold still air lingers morning crest

Runner 🏃‍♀️ does her best .

Haiku


Time arrives quickly

It is pretty amazing

A peace of knowing …

Forest Run


A long quiet run

No souls or creatures about

Just sounds of silence .
