poems

blue sky
green leaves on trees
and evergreens
orange daylilies
bloom

a few stores
face masks
and social distance
easy to say hello
and smile with our eyes
wash hands when we
return home and often

sky and earth

clear night sky
plants and gardens wait
for sunrise

gardens growing
long before we came here
how deep the roots
must be and decades old
planted in God’s earth

Ellen Grace Olinger

blue sky and green trees

blue sky and green trees
what a comfort
to read near a window
and see the same view
year after year

much has changed

new learning curves
and all I cannot know
though I learn a little more
every day

and sometimes
what is stored
in the heart is enough
