Golden loaves of bread
that rise in grandma’s woodstove
served with fall preserves

Smokey farmhouse memories
of breakfast conversations

Warrior’s Death

Paintings from Norse mythology Peter Nicolai Arbo, Valkyrie’s Death Oil on canvas 1880

Hero’s tears tumble
on lips pursed in dying breath
-life’s struggle over

noble effort undertook
cost of honor bravely paid

Morning mist blankets
falls ultimate act of love
brings peace to harvest

stilling scythe with daybreak dew
hushing autumns reaper swirl
