Monday notes

Recently, Karl and I went to Walmart in Sheboygan. We walked through the new expanded books area – very nice. Yesterday, we went to Harbor Freight Tools in Sheboygan, and drove around a little to admire June gardens. We stopped at Woodlake Market in Kohler. I had not been there for a time, and was happy to see books for sale there as well.

Bleeding Hearts: Photo and Poems

This is another beautiful photo by Karl from yesterday.

Poems from my archives, inspired by bleeding hearts:

old photos
on my desk —
bleeding hearts in bloom

Published first in Time Of Singing (1994). Also reprinted with the poems selected for my Poet Profile at The Haiku Foundation.

AUTUMN GRACE

leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
Autumn grace
