Poem and Photo

IT IS IMPORTANT

To have a vision
to sustain the effort
to see it all the way
through – –

Even when it seems
to leave you

*

This is a favorite old poem, and it has found many homes.

It was published first in Time Of Singing.

Flowers in Town

Karl took these photos today, at a small park in Oostburg, Wisconsin.  Near the railroad tracks, this is a beautiful area.

These flowers, from the previous two photos, are planted beneath a plaque honoring World War II veterans from Oostburg, Wisconsin.  Their names are listed.

There is an official Village of Oostburg website.

with pink clouds
floating in sky
pink lilies on the table

Hope

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