Haiku Photos at Home

These are more photos from my archives to share again. As I type, I think of haiku. A smaller form – or space – can lead to new ideas.

I read a lot, sometimes aloud. Many authors. Then perhaps I am more likely to think of a better word for a small poem.

The news, and then I see a cardinal in the yard. Daffodils and daylilies are beginning to grow, the early beginnings of new green.

These photos include treasures from thrift stores. I call some of my photos HAIKU PHOTOS.

Grateful at Home

I looked at my WordPress Reader and saw a post from the Mead Public Library Blog.

Mead Public Library is in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. Of course, now they must be “Closed Until Further Notice.”

They have a page for Up-to-Date Information on Coronavirus (Covid-19).

The libraries offer so much to their communities. I have memories of going to a library with my mother. I do not remember learning how to read. My love of the language arts has carried me through many life chapters.

This life chapter we all share.

These are photos I took at home over the years.

Photos and Short Poems

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

reading Psalms
in the sunroom
fragrance of daffodils

poems we read
again and again
washing an old plate
the pattern
still new

different shapes
of the rose bush
and lilacs in the yard
they grew towards
the light

Good research time for interesting and beautiful images for my new series at Poems From Psalms And Nature – a verse or two and a picture, one post at a time. And I have rediscovered images from our archives. Today’s post there was from Psalm 4.
