reflection of the lamp
in the window
and evergreens
covered with snow

peaceful blessings
of routine work
and time to read
my reward for a time

poetry journals
and books
by my chair
and on shelves

mandevilla plant
lives in the sunroom now
surely one of the stars
in the yard this year

And so happy we were able to walk by The Sheboygan River at Kiwanis Park again this year (Sheboygan, Wisconsin).

routine care
and happy to wait my turn
I watch the world go by
and my heart
fills with love

Creativity Over Time

I realized that my two posts yesterday reprinted a poem published in 1994, and then another poem in 2014.

writing over time
more than sometimes
I knew

lessons learned
lived again
anew

what was learned
can be applied again
with new wisdom

losses and griefs
changes
and health needs

so much creativity
and gratitude

rest and patience
always beauty, love,
faith, hope

Wait on the Lord:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord
.

Psalm 27:14 (KJV)
