cold today

cold today
ice along the shore
and brilliant sun
above clouds

warm today
quiet thoughts
recharged my laptop
read a few Psalms
aloud

kind words
prayers
good food
posts

friendship

Ellen Grace Olinger

these wood walls

these wood walls
shelter and add
so much beauty
to this cold day

and all days

others have lived
here too these
past decades

today I wonder
about the other
stories . . .

when the
trees were young

and grew tall
long before
I was born

and then became
this house and

they still seem
alive to me

from January 2015
