Poems and Photos: January – June 2019

sometimes I think
a room will feel warmer
with the blinds closed

yet how wonderful
to raise them
and let the sun shine
into a room

see the frost paintings
the shapes of tree branches
track the light
through the seasons

Saturday afternoon
clouds, sun, and wind chimes
along the trail

On this day we went to the Good As New Resale Shop in Cedar Grove, and then walked on a new-for-me part of the Sheboygan Interurban Trail.

perhaps
not the best of days
hair needs some work
a missing button
on a sweater
welcome anyway

We love the family restaurants in our area. I look forward to how each place decorates for the seasons. The specials and especially the homemade soups.

September

This is a poem from September 2012.

September begins
with apple trees
overflowing to the ground
and the music of wind

on a short errand
goldenrod in bloom
near Bossler’s
Christmas Tree Farm

oh I am in no hurry
one day at a time
works best for me now

still the image stays in my mind . . .

we hold the door

we hold the door
for older people

autumn in the air
young people
open doors for me
