lights on the water

lights on the water
perhaps a fisherman
checking conditions

long conversations
with old and new friends
in my mind for days

hay bales in the fields
not realizing before
how it grows . . .

    1. Good morning, Linda. Thank you.

      Madeleine L’Engle * taught me that the work knows more than we do. This is an example, as I only saw what you say later on, after I wrote and posted the poem.

      * Walking On Water: Reflections On Faith And Art, by Madeleine L’Engle. I read this years ago, and the Crosswicks copyright is 1980. Within the last few years, I also bought the paperback version, published by North Point Press, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, New York.

      Thanks again, as always, Ellen
