Lake Michigan Poems

cold
Lake Michigan winds
a tiny bird
seeks shelter
by the kitchen window

gold leaves
drift to ground
sunbeam
on the water

Northern sun
shines on frozen beach
still the days grow shorter
shadow of poinsettia
on the wall

barge with lights
travels our great lake . . .
thoughts and prayers
for those with thoughts
of home

“Northern sun” is from Quiet Christmas Poetry.

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.
