changes in the yard

changes in the yard
over the years
wildflowers

pruned back
and growing anew
cotoneasters

birds visit the birch tree
near where I read
I still do not know
all their songs

friends
for as long as I can remember
books and more books

changes in the yard
wildflowers I love
grow here too

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

* from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV)

dragonfly rests
for a moment
on the tree branch
long enough for me
to see each wing

wildflowers grow
by fields of corn
words of poetry
uplift my soul
keep me strong

Queen Anne’s Lace
along the roads
missing my mother
she somehow
seems near

strength for the iris
while waiting to bloom
daylily

early hours
of quiet and poetry
gardens overflow
and if some winter
my mind forgets
my heart will know

morning music
bird songs more present
than sounds from the highway

as I create a post
and prepare to publish
I see the themes
of my life so far

art, beauty, creativity, encouragement, faith, flowers, gratitude, grief, health, hope, love, nature, poetry, seasons. . .
