early Spring

early Spring
in the yard
near the house
daylilies begin

to grow

And in the summer, we will need to clear the path to the door, and so will have daylilies in the house too.

Lake Michigan Today

As you can see, the ice is breaking up in the water. I asked Karl to take photos for the blog.

March Reflections


the month begins
with Winter
and ends
with early Spring

the poinsettia
is still beautiful
and I think about
Easter lilies

longer days
of light and reading
new and old books
by a window

of icicles
on the calendar
and wall

Photos are by Karl. The poinsettia photo is from Christmas Day, 2018. The lily photo is from April, 2010.
