Images

reflection of the lamp
in the window
and evergreens
covered with snow

peaceful blessings
of routine work
and time to read
my reward for a time

poetry journals
and books
by my chair
and on shelves

mandevilla plant
lives in the sunroom now
surely one of the stars
in the yard this year

And so happy we were able to walk by The Sheboygan River at Kiwanis Park again this year (Sheboygan, Wisconsin).

September

This is a poem from September 2012.

September begins
with apple trees
overflowing to the ground
and the music of wind

on a short errand
goldenrod in bloom
near Bossler’s
Christmas Tree Farm

oh I am in no hurry
one day at a time
works best for me now

still the image stays in my mind . . .

Wisconsin seasons

Wisconsin seasons
each with their own
character and beauty
how I love the seasons

a walk by the river

a walk by the river
butterflies and wildflowers
memories of being there
this time last year
after medical appointments
in Sheboygan

I said, “Hello, old friends”
when I saw the trees

Karl took these photos last year. I thought, “It is healing to walk by the river.” Then I realized the river is healing too. Later today, we will review photos from yesterday and share here the next few days.
