Sunday: photos and poems

Geranium – photo by Karl

Three poems from my archives:


all afternoon
the sounds
squirrel harvesting
pine cones


trimming the stems
of carnations
and giving them
fresh water
October sun


strong cold winds

leaves fall
reveal shapes
of trees

light falls
into the house
as sun moves south

red geraniums
still bloom

October turns
to face November

Some photos of hosta from the yard, 2015 – 2016:

It is always joyful to see the plants begin again in Spring.

Summer flowers
More hosta flowers and leaves

I look forward to all the seasons.

two poems

my large print Bible
rests on the Thanksgiving tray
the bread of life

reading poetry
my coffee gets cold
guess I made it
for the fragrance
