Hopefully, They will Say...

Does It Matter?

Love Found

Who Knew?

My Little Dog named-Art



Yesterday's Autumn

A Bowl of Cheers?

I Say!

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?

Ten

When is it all going to end?

Sleep

Just Let It Be

La Vie en Rose

Heads in the Sand?

If I've Learned Anything!

Silver Bullet

The Path We Choose

A Soldier's Integrity

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

Robin Fly Away

You See!

The Demise of the Old Cowboy

What Will I Miss?

Ode to Christian "Kiki" Fenot

Bobby and Me

The Scarlet Leaf of Autumn's End

Did you see it!
There it goes again!
Swirling, whirling, gliding
like a magical carpet in the wind.

The warm Autumn air pushing it along.
Slowly twisting, descending, but not quite
touching down.

Then quickly rising back into
the late Autumn sky.
Like a bird, it flutters and  
soars higher and higher.
Can you still see it?
It’s almost out of sight.

Oh! It’s gone!
I wonder where it will eventually land?
That last scarlet leaf of Autumn’s end.
