Trees: Short Poems

as beautiful
without leaves
birch trees
in the forest

day began early
and winding down
light catches the end
of an evergreen branch
in a light breeze

wind uplifting
branches of trees
sunrise

weathered trees
strong and beautiful
my time of healing

paintings of trees
on old pine walls
quiet music

reading a new book
the fragrance
of fresh paper

dragonfly rests
for a moment
on the tree branch
long enough for me
to see each wing

New hosta by the birch tree – May 2015

Ellen Grace Olinger

always beauty

after the leaves fall
and the days grow short
holiday lights begin

small town main streets
and country roads

November skies and fields
have a stark and simple
beauty

when winter settles in
for a long time
after Christmas

the light in January
is already changed
from now
