Moonlit Dreams

The night mist dances

slowly, gracefully

over the  darkening land.

She knows her job wellnight faries6a

and as night deepens

she quickens in her journey.

There is much to do before dawn

on arrival she wastes no time

soothing, calming and inspiring

each to dream their beautiful dreams

and as peaceful slumber arrives

she smiles and swirls away

sharing more of her moonlit dreams.

Mysteries of the Wind

Up again down again round & round

whirling, rushing, all over town.

Why the hurry and where’s it bound,

as it swirls and blusters, pushing us around. 

Constantly whirling to and fro.

Sailing the oceans, as it continues to blow.

So what’s it after and why does it run?

Perhaps it’s chasing the Moon,

or just following the Sun.

Old Man Winter’s, at it again

He makes his appearance

in a cool set of duds

long white coat

matching gloves.

Whistling a tune

that shakes the trees

loosening the last

of Autumn’s leaves.

He’ll flaunt his colors

of blue, grey and white

and orchestrate storms

to show off his might.

The days he’ll shorten

and nights prolong

constantly changing

his bone chilling song.

His powerful reign

will play on for a spell

but he’ll finally wear down

and go straight back to ….       Hansi Riley

Running for Exercise…sort of!

For exercise I like to run.

So I run the dishwasher

dryer,  my nylons and more!

The thing is…

I need variety in my runs!    Hansi Riley

Wicked 4


No matter how you plan

or how well things are going

fate is still a step ahead.

She’s a wicked vixen

with a cruel sense of humor

and if you think you’re safe…

think again!     Hansi Riley
