endurance and trust

gold hosta leaves
rest on the ground
cover the ground
by the ash tree stump
windows and porch

images of beauty
work complete for a time
endurance and trust
through fall and winter
to spring and summer

When we moved here long ago, a neighbor said, “You learn to save some things for winter.” I love the quiet of late autumn and winter. And at this time, I like the sounds of the outdoor work. People are getting done what they can, and then that work too follows the weather and seasons. Patience.

I think there will be more letters and emails with requests for donations this year. Already a few on our kitchen table.

We plan some donations of Quiet Christmas Poetry. We published the book in 2014, and it is still new.  The second printing of the book was in 2017.  Thank you to GT Graphics in Sheboygan, Wisconsin for their excellent work. Perhaps there will be a third printing this year.
