Poems for the New Year

driving across
a new bridge
on an old road

January thaw . . .
letting go
of old heartaches

poems we read
again and again
washing an old plate
the pattern
still new

A favorite blog poem

turning the vase
of flowers
learning
there are
more roses

Poems for the New Year

preparing a meal
of fresh vegetables
New Year’s Eve

ice floating
in rose-colored water
some days
feeling old
some young

New Year’s Eve
nearing the end
of a book
with many more
to read

… I will hope continually,
and will yet praise thee
more and more.


Psalm 71: 14 (KJV)

treetops
in golden light
sunset

shades of green and red
year-round
new year begins
with blessings
of fresh vegetables

turning the vase
of flowers
learning
there are
more roses
