It’s always wash day
Where ever we may travel
Daily chores to do

Blues and lusty red
Amidst dark and brooding clouds
Subtle changing hues

Neat little boxes
Painted against the weather
And to tell apart

Fall in Alberta

Fall in full colour
Chill between my shoulder blades
Crisp air in my lungs

The false buttercup
Don’t put this under your chin
It will bite you sure

Thanksgiving Day

Gathered together
To break bread with each other
Please pass the gravy

Across lonely beach
Chaos of muted colours
Crunch of my footsteps

After a quick change
We’ll plunge into the water
Who’s the rotten egg?

Blue skies, golden leaves
Colour, colour everywhere
Russet and turquoise

Or housing development?
To watch boat races

Finger painted artistry
Ever changing

There they are, honey
We’re near our destination
Let the games begin

Along the Road

A walk in the woods
We stop to pick up dry leaves
Smell smoke in the air

A joyful chorus
Sings praise to life-giving Sun
Gives alleluia

For Bandar linemen
Must have been a lot of fun
Stringing these wires

Shoreline nursery

The water may look chilly
We’re stouthearted men

Amid this scenic beauty
A pause to refresh

In war there are no winners
All have their losses

For local transportation
Already in use

As if the first visitor
Seeing with fresh eyes

Whether by colour nor trim
Except in purpose

Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick
The hands of time move onward
But for one hour

Happy Birthday, Fern

Count not the times you’ve
Gone round the sun. But do count
The friends you have won.

Blast cool air into hot home
Open windows thwart

We look up to roiling sky
Quickly leave the course

These useful little boxes
You go first, I’m next

Down the Lane

Do you hear something?
There’s a sound in the bushes
It might be a deer

Leucadendron 10

Fingers of fire
Lithe flames of impish spirits
Dancing in the heat
