I remember

I remember
learning the small roads
and then the smaller roads
the ones not used by many
to reach the freeways

where in the Spring
sometimes
I hear the red-winged
blackbirds again

We bought the swag at a grocery store, and Karl added a few more decorations he had saved from other years. So this Holiday Swag is one of a kind! Karl took the photo today. The snow and wind also created beauty for the cedar tree.

today the calm beauty

We’ve had strong winds, and Lake Michigan waves splashed up into our front yard, tossing some wood that was drifting in the water. We are high enough above the lake, our shoreline was reinforced years ago, and so we are safe. It’s a different scene with the water this high, and no beach.
