The usual walk
Canceled
Tides wait for no one

Angry heavens
Someone bowling above?
Spare us lightning strikes

Thanksgiving

To share the table
With those of long acquaintance
Gift of hearth and home

Skies Have It

Warning or okay?
Is it a sailor’s delight?
The morrow will tell

In red cloak he swirls
Whirls around like a Dervish

For as long as I can see
Trudge in single file

Flying above, seagulls scream
Adventure ahead

Veterans Day


Yon remembered past
And the lives that were given
For cause, just or not



In Flanders Fields

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

Come gather round the manger
Watch new life emerge

We pass to the bright clearing
Far from prying eyes

Onwards and upwards
Is this, then, heaven’s staircase?
Let’s climb and find out

Just had to catch this image
Sky was abundant

Peaceful hearts at rest

Brings the eye delight

Ticking of the clock
Linear time is passing
It is always now
