Tag: Paul Sherman of wpclipart


The sun rose almost an hour ago.  I looked at the clock – 6: 11.  The light through the days and seasons is a beautiful gift to observe and enjoy.

A few short poems from my archives:

night sky
seeing stars
through leaves

raindrop balances
on a branch
almost Autumn


An acrostic for Autumn:

A dore with no need for a moment to
U nderstand this beauty
T rust and
U nderline with words, painting, photo . . . this
M oment
N ow and always


to the store
on old beloved roads
light and wind
through fields of corn
birds fly together


Poems are by Ellen Grace Olinger.

Three Haiku


lasting a long time
daffodils planted
in loving memory

tree farm
young trees grow
alongside the old

loved for years
and now I know your name
blue chicory

“loved for years” is an older haiku, and the blue chicory will bloom later in summer.  I recently found the photos of the chicory at wpclipart.  The credit for each says: “Photo by Paul Sherman of wpclipart dedicated to the Public Domain.”
