January Poems and Photos

Laker in the Mist – January 2012
Photo by Karl

clear blue skies
rest my eyes
icicles melting
and willows already
look gold in the sun

still I cherish
this winter time
and will long for it
some summer days
when the gardens
are overrun

January 2013

conversations
at the family restaurant
hearts on windows

From January 2015: On this day, Karl and I went to Sheboygan’s Family Restaurant and Bethesda Thrift Store. We enjoyed meals there in 2019 too. And we are seeing some hints of Valentine’s Day in some stores! So many nice memories would be lost without the blog.

so cold
yet from
this ground
daffodils
and tulips
will grow
again
