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

July Poems and Pictures

robin on the branch
outside my window
rain-washed air

Deep calleth unto deep … *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV)

dragonfly rests
for a moment
on the tree branch
long enough for me
to see each wing

wildflowers grow
by fields of corn
words of poetry
uplift my soul
keep me strong

Queen Anne’s Lace
along the roads
missing my mother
she somehow
seems near

strength for the iris
while waiting to bloom
daylily

early hours
of quiet and poetry
gardens overflow
and if some winter
my mind forgets
my heart will know

morning music
bird songs more present
than sounds from the highway

as I create a post
and prepare to publish
I see the themes
of my life so far

art, beauty, creativity, encouragement, faith, flowers, gratitude, grief, health, hope, love, nature, poetry, seasons. . .
