Photo Challenge TIME

For the photo challenge TIME – Lake Michigan in Wisconsin USA.

Even though the water, sky and beach are always changing, there are moments when time seems to rest a little.

colors in the garden

carrots, cabbage
spinach, radishes
and faded flower bouquets
food on the snow
for a rabbit


When snow covered the garden, the rabbit found the bark on branches from the cotoneaster that were bowed to the ground.  The bushes need to be pruned anyway.

January days


My parents were both born in January; Dad in 1915 and Mom in 1917.  I remembered them in posts at my Grief And Acceptance site.  Every day, as I read, write, and listen, I am in touch with history and literature – subjects they taught.

another year
has passed since
my mother’s passing
I sit and quietly read
a book she would like too


I also worked more on my Poems For Bulletin Boards site recently.  My acrostic poem for BOOKS continues to be the favorite poem.

B  eautiful way to
O  pen hearts and
O  pen minds to
K  now new stories and
S  ongs


Today is quiet and grey.  I’ve been reading poetry and there is a sense of February soon.  A small wall hanging of stars by my computer, from Bethesda Thrift Store in Sheboygan, says Love Faith Hope.
