Autumn reflections



the beautiful

how brilliant
the light

as days grow shorter

water sparkles
and birds and
butterflies leave

to bless others now
and return again later

from my mother’s home
have found their places
in this home

two paper file boxes
filled with poetry
become a table
covered with a cloth

and another decorates
a tall file cabinet

with a pattern
with orange hearts

wind and waves


Yesterday, Karl and I enjoyed a nice meal at Sheboygan’s Family Restaurant.  We both noticed the wind in the treetops, and then in the fields of corn as we drove home.  The wind creates waves similar in form to what we see on Lake Michigan.

We also went to Bethesda Thrift Store.  I found two old-fashioned devotional books, similar to what I hope to create some day.  Karl found some gifts for a friend.

Hope you have a nice weekend, Ellen
