broccoli for lunch


broccoli for lunch
in bright winter sun
days grow longer


Poem from my February archives:

Spring will return
here and there
and then I’ll say,
“When did this happen?”
Today, though, I rest
in longer light
on evergreens
in a tiny bit of wind

For a moment later, the light on the cotoneaster branches looked like holiday lights.

In the afternoon, Karl and I went for a walk in the neighborhood.  The light through trees, falling on a creek, November gardens . . . all so beautiful.


This morning, I discovered some vintage postcards by Ellen Clapsaddle at Reusable Art.  This is one example:


Thanksgiving Harvest

The snowdrops – these tiny flowers – last a long time.  There seem to be more every year.  Today they are beautiful in the sunlight.
