Grateful for Community

The Sheboygan County Wisconsin site has current and important information about Coronavirus (COVID-19). We follow the data at the Sheboygan County Coronavirus Case Dashboard.

So often I think of my parents and the history they lived through. We are all living through COVID-19 history. We wear our face masks, practice social distance, wash our hands often, etc. We take care of one another and ourselves. Our common story, one day at a time.

Future posts will feature the libraries in our area. I am always so grateful for libraries.

Thank YOU for your posts from many places. You add so much to my days.

I am creating a lot at home, since I am here most of the time. I can see this in my haiku. Recent posts are examples. I am calling these “Study Poems.”

Acrostic For NOVEMBER – November 1, 2011

sitting at my blog
grateful for friends
first snowflakes
gently fall
and rest on the roof

snowflakes (it’s true) – November 12, 2012

earth turned over
in winter fields
yet new green grows –
Christmas wreaths

earth turned over – November 25, 2012

grey beautiful sky
evergreen trees
and short days
soon to be decorated
with holiday lights

two short poems – November 4, 2013

November day
one small flower
in the garden

November day – November 9, 2015

small evergreen branch
apart from its tree
caught by and adding green
to a birch tree branch
with few gold leaves

small evergreen branch – November 10, 2015

snowflakes
floating in the air
separate
together
artists
across places
and time

For a time, I wandered around the yard with a small camera, and looked for the photos. Hope to begin again.

Take good care,
