Creative Note: Books

We went to the Bethesda Wisconsin – Sheboygan Thrift Shop. I mostly looked at art and books. I bought two books. A wonderful store. I can always donate back or give to another person or thrift store, after I read.

Yesterday a new book arrived. Karl asked if I wanted to add anything to an order from Amazon.

The new book is a glimpse of water fall, poems and drawings by Jane Tims. Fredericton, April 2021. Published by Kindle Direct Publishing.

I first learned of Jane’s work from her site, nichepoetryandprose “poetry and prose about place.”

Summer poems

tree with full leaves
providing shade
comfort of faith

loved for years
and now I know your name
blue chicory

wearing
my old sweater
worn thin
Queen Anne’s Lace
along country roads

old and new flowers

old and new flowers
grow and bloom together
in the gardens

Yesterday afternoon, I heard this poem again (from July 2012).

recollections
of summers gone by
voices on the breeze
