Photo Galleries

This gallery includes new photos by Karl and some of his photos from our visits to community paths.  I also added a few of my photos of the peonies.  Karl took the photos for the blog when we began in December 2009.  I began with photography in 2015.  These photos are all from this year, though I enjoy creating new posts from the best (or most interesting ) in our archives (poems and photos).

Playing with gallery arrangements, I see how the colors of milkweed plants from the path and peonies from the yard work together.

And the many forms of beauty . . . hope to visit the same places through the seasons.

There are many nice paths in our area.  We visited one today, and Karl took these photos.  Perhaps we can note the beauty of the trails many days, and through the seasons.

Trees: Short Poems

as beautiful
without leaves
birch trees
in the forest

day began early
and winding down
light catches the end
of an evergreen branch
in a light breeze

wind uplifting
branches of trees
sunrise

weathered trees
strong and beautiful
my time of healing

paintings of trees
on old pine walls
quiet music

reading a new book
the fragrance
of fresh paper

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