May begins with primroses

May begins with a small primrose plant in bloom near the house.

Last year, Karl had to remove a lot of garlic mustard, which is invasive. Those weeds have to be thrown out in bags. Not a compost pile.

I learned more about Garlic Mustard and why it is an “ecological threat” at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

Karl also pruned our cotoneasters last year and tiny new bushes are growing again.

And I continue to watch good programs at Milwaukee PBS.

At Poems From Psalms And Nature, I began a new series on the theme of Mercy and Gratitude, which will feature my poems inspired by thrift stores, with links to the store sites.

books and music

books and music
from over the years
live on these shelves

even if I don’t
reread or listen again

somehow their
healing influence
is in these words
