two tulips grow

two tulips grow
where the garden
was cleared

we did not plant them

how many years did
they try to grow?

this is their year

and the old hedge
grows again too

Daily Life These Days

Early morning, and I sit in silence for a time. An old haiku:

cup of coffee
by the water
this day to God

Lake Michigan water levels are at record highs.

Then I cook a healthy breakfast, and stay current with the news. Check my WordPress reader, and always so much art and hope here. I continue to follow the daily instructions from my Care Team. Grateful.

Sanctuary Series, 1985 is an interesting post from Art Discarded 2 “Art that has been tossed by the wayside and rediscovered.” I remember being at an art museum with my family when young. The colors.

I saw a robin in the yard this morning, and perennials grow again.

An email today from Charlotte at Madeleine L’Engle about a short story collection by Madeleine, The Moment of Tenderness, released today. The introduction is by Charlotte Jones Voiklis, who is Madeleine L’Engle’s granddaughter and executor of her estate. Madeleine’s books are good for this time, and always.

Another old haiku:

old photos
on my desk —
bleeding hearts in bloom

Published first in Time Of Singing (1994). Also reprinted with the poems selected for my Poet Profile at The Haiku Foundation. Billie Wilson was editor then and helped me with my page.

Patience, peace, home

Meditation: Peace

I watch or read the news. And many hours of the day I read, pray, create, look for beauty. A lot of time with blogs. Simple work at home. There are snowdrops in the garden. Earlier this year, Karl did a lot of work in the yard, on warm days. There is new space for daylilies and hosta to grow.
