On this cold fall day,
I sit huddled on a limb,
Wishing it were Spring.

so early in the
morning for the sky
to be angry
September 23, 2020
ripples in the water
give a reflection of fantasy
no matter it’s real

I live by a pond along its shore,
Another year has passed,
I am preparing for winter.
People come to visit my pond,
To enjoy the birds and other wildlife,
They come to walk, run, and bicycle.
Sometimes they sit on a bench,
Underneath my branches,
I hear them speak.
Some are happy I hear them laugh,
Some are sad I hear them cry,
Some talk about troubled times.
A virus they say has invaded their world,
These times have brought suffering even death.
Will our lives ever be the same they ask each other.
Daily routines have been altered,
Everyday normal activities changed,
Personal interactions are difficult or nonexistent.
As one season ends and another begins,
I wish for these troubled times to be over,
I wish for normalcy to return.
Have hope my friends who sit underneath me,
For a have lived a long time I am wise,
Love, laughter, and good times will come.
Live and value each day to its fullest,
Enjoy these beautiful autumn days,
Have hope my friends who sit underneath me.
