Short Poems

spruce

driving across
a new bridge
on an old road
the miracles of
everyday life

(November 2012)

the years
that were so hard
and yet
they gave me
my stories

*

cold
Lake Michigan winds
a tiny bird
seeks shelter
by the kitchen window

*

grey beautiful sky
evergreen trees
and short days
soon to be decorated
with holiday lights

(November 2013)
