Seasons

sometimes
it is enough
to simply hold
one of my
well-worn Bibles
and thank God
and then reread
a Psalm I’ve read
more times than
I know and still
discover something
new

Poems From Psalms And Nature

February 24, 2015

We stopped by Kiwanis Park yesterday, and were able to walk on a sidewalk across from the river. Karl took these photos last March.

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.

Images

reflection of the lamp
in the window
and evergreens
covered with snow

peaceful blessings
of routine work
and time to read
my reward for a time

poetry journals
and books
by my chair
and on shelves

mandevilla plant
lives in the sunroom now
surely one of the stars
in the yard this year

And so happy we were able to walk by The Sheboygan River at Kiwanis Park again this year (Sheboygan, Wisconsin).

Wisconsin seasons
each with their own
character and beauty
how I love the seasons

a walk by the river

a walk by the river
butterflies and wildflowers
memories of being there
this time last year
after medical appointments
in Sheboygan

I said, “Hello, old friends”
when I saw the trees

Karl took these photos last year. I thought, “It is healing to walk by the river.” Then I realized the river is healing too. Later today, we will review photos from yesterday and share here the next few days.
