many Springs

many Springs
yellow primroses
near an old tree

hosta grow again
around the ash tree stump –
the tree that fell in 2018

old friends
perennials and trees
new books and old
I read and observe
with gratitude

Small Study Poems and Seasons – 1

My small study on the second floor is my view of the seasons when I read print journals and books. A comfortable chair, a lamp, a desk by the window, a plant, and a bookcase. File cabinets. The back yard is the view – sky, clouds, light, trees, birds. The lamp was a gift from Karl and has a small table and place for books.

This morning, I thought I’d see if over time a collection that pictures the seasons has grown. I post in an everyday way here. For this post, I reviewed my archives from January 2020 – August 2020.

new day
in my older life
sun on evergreens

winter storm Sunday
a day to read poems
and enjoy the images,
language, and craft
with my heart

From February 9, 2020

Monday afternoon
in March
sun fills a bookcase
from my father

grey sky
mourning dove
on a birch tree branch

time with the Psalms
a dove on the branch
pictures a poem

evergreen branches
with grey clouds
and blue sky
praying the Psalms

From May 11, 2020

trees have grown
and summer is here
the view where I read
is more green than sky

From June 22, 2020

July days go by
this year’s leaves
in sun and wind

July 30, 2020

reading a poem
or two from a new book *
and the sky, wind,
and trees in the yard
almost September
