We stopped at Mentink’s Market Piggly Wiggly in Oostburg, Wisconsin yesterday. They have a large box of pumpkins in the store, and we bought one for a small garden near the back door.

Poem and Photos

early Fall
some beginnings
of new colors

and yet with
the dead ash trees
away from the roads

it looks like a later time
other years when
some leaves
have fallen

corn growing tall
in some fields
and the next field
fallow this year

times of rest
and then new beginnings

With thanks to all who did so much tree work this year, from yards to keeping power lines clear.

Karl took this photo in July, of the begonia and ash tree stump. The front yard had a new look this year.

The hosta flowers were especially beautiful this year.

September

This is a poem from September 2012.

September begins
with apple trees
overflowing to the ground
and the music of wind

on a short errand
goldenrod in bloom
near Bossler’s
Christmas Tree Farm

oh I am in no hurry
one day at a time
works best for me now

still the image stays in my mind . . .

old garage
in morning light
view from kitchen window

today

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