Late November
barges with their lights on
travel along the Lake Michigan horizon
we leave low-energy lights on too
to say hello

the shortest day

Light

Karl took this peaceful photo at the Parnell Tower Trail park in the Kettle Moraine State Forest – Northern Unit.  We stopped by last Sunday, and hope to return to walk the trail.

as birds quietly sing

losses in life
low setting sun
through branches of trees
now rises again
as birds quietly sing

Psalm 1: 3 (KJV) :

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Turning the vase
of flowers

there are
more roses

I am beginning work on a second large print chapbook, in the same style as Quiet Christmas Poetry.  My first step is to reread my archives, so I can remember my best short poems.  Then I will gradually know the sequence for the book.  The theme is Wisconsin seasons and encouragement.
