March poems

late afternoon sun
shines into my little
study longer
another Spring
is given

a new river of
poems begins to flow
as I grow older
still reading by natural light
late afternoon sun

new library books
and wandering home
on all the roads
fields, spring air, sky
first red-winged blackbird

old weathered trees
in afternoon sun
seem so peaceful
why worry about leaves
not just yet
the sun is longer
and maybe warmer
and the sky is blue

Poems and Photos

late afternoon

late afternoon
on a warm fall day
people of all ages
at the market
time for supper

Mentink’s Market Piggly Wiggly – Oostburg, Wisconsin

We bought these flowers at Mentink’s Market in July.

Lily Photos

One year, we bought an Easter Lily that had lived in a store for awhile. The shape showed how it reached for light. A nice memory, to bring the plant home, and watch it bloom.
