Lake Michigan Today

Cold today, and Karl took these photos. He explained to me the other day, that because the water is warmer than the air now, steam rises from the lake. So with our high water levels this year, the evaporation helps lower the water levels. We have rip-rap (new word for me – large rocks) that protects our property.

Christmas Poems

almost Christmas
through the evergreens
clear blue sky

reading one page
at a time
of this book and that
evergreens
in gentle wind

holiness
and humility
Christmas

And the Word
was made flesh,
and dwelt among us . . .
full of grace
and truth.

From John 1:14 (KJV)

My poems and the Bible verse are from Quiet Christmas Poetry, which is both a site and a large print chapbook.

For this post, I played with the new Gutenberg editor. I like the new editor.

Karl took the photo of the winter Lake Michigan beach, which became the cover art for our Christmas book.

GT Graphics in Sheboygan, Wisconsin printed Quiet Christmas Poetry.

Copies can be ordered from the books page at Time Of Singing. All proceeds benefit this poetry journal.
