short poems

losses in life
low setting sun
through branches of trees
now rises again
as birds quietly sing

new day
in my older life
sun on evergreens

new day begins
ribbon bookmarks
from beloved books
rest on the wood shelf

reminding me
to love each day
one gold leaf
on the birch tree

autumn leaves
the caregiver finds time
to rest

“autumn leaves” was the Daily Haiku for August 14, 2019.

poems

blue sky
green leaves on trees
and evergreens
orange daylilies
bloom

a few stores
face masks
and social distance
easy to say hello
and smile with our eyes
wash hands when we
return home and often

To everything there is a season,
and a time to every purpose

Ecclesiastes 3: 1 (KJV)

SEASON is one of the poems from Quiet Christmas Poetry, which is both a site and a large print chapbook.

social distance greetings

social distance greetings
across parking lots
and park spaces
open in some ways
closed in others
we all understand
and are grateful
our common good

And garden journal photos by Karl this week:

Bridal wreath by Lake Michigan – we planted this bush years ago.

Poppies were planted by previous owners decades ago.

Kohler-Andrae State Park

Karl and I drove to Kohler-Andrae State Park today.

We already have our annual vehicle admission sticker for the Wisconsin State Park System. Wisconsin DNR & COVID-19 has more information.

People were there. The park is large and it was easy to practice social distance. We have our face masks in the car, when needed. There was plenty of room to walk.

The visitor center at the entrance is closed. By the building, there is a garden and pond. Karl took these photos there, and in that area.

A beautiful day. One good careful step at a time.
