August Heat

The August heat

stayed overnight

making my morning

walk almost unbearable

 

The humidity crawled

along my hairline and

left damp curls in its wake

 

The day feels different

than most days …

the atmosphere close

and senses are heightened

 

As my eyes adjusted

to the predawn dark

the other senses took

over …

 

There was a faint

smell of horse and

fresh manure in the lot

A whiff of unmistakable

body odor … heat, sweat,

dirt, unwashed body

And…

The sickly sweet smell

of something dead

somewhere in the dark

making me wonder

who else is other there

Ghost Shadows

Ghost Shadows

Waking to a clear

cold morning

She was surprised

by the heavy frost

 

Sparkling like a

blanket of tiny

diamonds covering

the world

 

Clean…

Pristine…

Undisturbed…

Her footprints

appeared like

ghost shadows

showing her path

 

Quiet…

Calm…

Peaceful…

Even the dueling

roosters and owl

were silent as she

made her way

along her morning

walk

 

Refreshed…

Rejuvenated…

She returns home

to begin the day…

Lone Owl…

A pre-dawn walk
the wonders of nature
in the October crisp air
 
My day just waking
as night tries to hold
the covers tight and 
isn’t willing to give
up night’s beauty
 
Crystal clear sky
Stars so close they
can be touched
 
And…
 
A lone owl demanding
‘Whoo’
is invading the beauty
of his peaceful dark domain…

Midnight…

Hot summer night
Restless…
Sleep escapes me
 
Tossing and turning
sheets tangled
and heart racing
 
Looking for release
a midnight walk
cooling breezes
calming my steamy skin
 
A chance encounter
And…
My life would 
Never be the Same
