Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in need is a beautiful poetry anthology with Time Of Singing. The cover and illustrations are by Charles A. Waugaman. We published the book in 2007, and it has lasted. The themes are timeless and many poets are featured. Lora Homan Zill and I served as Editors. Please visit the books page at Time Of Singing, if you wish to know more about this book.

As many of you know, Karl and I began Poems From Oostburg,Wisconsin in December 2009. A lot can happen in 10 years! Hope you enjoy this selection of poems. I still hope to create a print book from this blog, which is my primary site, with Karl’s help and photos. There will be a page with careful credits, and also with dates and places for Karl’s photos (this will take time and patience). Sometimes, with posts over time, we realize we have achieved more than we knew. No small thing to begin and create a blog. Sometimes I’ve wondered if I can continue; and then I rest and trust and return. And begin another season of work, by God’s grace.

A peaceful grey day here, with steady rain. The evergreens are so beautiful. We are also still seeing geese flying in formation. Spring, Summer, Fall – all so glorious. Yet I think I love this time most of all. Yesterday I went to Target and the brown fields had a covering of frost. I guess whatever time it may be is the best time. The wonder of seasons, wherever we are.
