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.

reading poems

reading poems
and a few moments
to reflect upon
what I read

light for a time
on the birch trees
on a grey day

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

mid-July

mid-July
plants on sale at stores
wait for new homes

today

mid-July
summer seems
to go faster now
all the more reason
to sit still a little more
