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)

sun and shadows

sun and shadows
on old brick path
wildflower rests

turning the pages
of calendars to June
with gratitude
for the many blessings
of May

last year this year

last year
I missed seeing
daffodils in the yard

they bloom for all
sheltered and strong
by the house

this year
I make a special effort
to see them again

to be sure not to miss them

tulips seem gone
perhaps can plant again
in the fall

and along the old path
primroses

from my archives:

they ask to be
in this poem
daffodils

sunrise
daffodils bowed by rain
recover
