Little Red Hydrant


Running I pass a

Little red hydrant all painted new.

I think to myself, how many you save,

so important are you !

Soulful Barn


A Robin with a staccato chirp sounds alarm

As a gray rabbit scurries across the road

Into a shabby white wash painted barn

Tattered with age and a yearning presence

…of the past

Stay


Morning make me a promise

be close with me today

wherever I go or wherever I stay.

I pray as I walk and hope you listen

as I deliver it all to you.

In your glistening morning,

the black shadows and magenta sun,

and Verdant fields wet with dew .

Haiku


Poetry in motion

A magenta glad opens;

Grace adorns in verse.

Run


I am not sure what

It is that draws me to the

LOVE of nature’s run.

Images


I ran this morning

On ice and snow

The trees glisten

The ice fairies glow

I hear the geese

Sound celebration

The storm is gone

Now jubilation

As I crunched

My shoes as I run

I looked up to see

A heart shaped sun

Looking in the Pages


Looking through pages

the freedom of the past.

Before the virus

came so fast.

It will be gone;

just hope and pray.

It won’t be long

we will see a new day.

Crescent Moon


The crescent moon

Shines just outside,

droplets of moon dust

Filters through ice crystals,

Frigid from late autumn.

We rise in hope as heavens

promise what we cannot.
