an early haiku

birds perch
in sheltering branches –
a grain of mustard seed

Inspired by Matthew 13: 31–32

Short Poems

spruce

driving across
a new bridge
on an old road
the miracles of
everyday life

(November 2012)

the years
that were so hard
and yet
they gave me
my stories

*

cold
Lake Michigan winds
a tiny bird
seeks shelter
by the kitchen window

*

grey beautiful sky
evergreen trees
and short days
soon to be decorated
with holiday lights

(November 2013)

Creative Observations

White_Pelican

We’ve had a lot of rain, and the farmers are working in their fields.  There are tiny corn plants in some fields, which is one of my favorite views every year.  Then the tall plants, and the harvest:  always seems like only a moment has gone by.

Summer takes awhile to arrive here, and pelicans are here these days.
