Early morning, and I sit in silence for a time. An old haiku:
cup of coffee
by the water
this day to God
Lake Michigan water levels are at record highs.
Then I cook a healthy breakfast, and stay current with the news. Check my WordPress reader, and always so much art and hope here. I continue to follow the daily instructions from my Care Team. Grateful.
Sanctuary Series, 1985 is an interesting post from Art Discarded 2 “Art that has been tossed by the wayside and rediscovered.” I remember being at an art museum with my family when young. The colors.
I saw a robin in the yard this morning, and perennials grow again.
An email today from Charlotte at Madeleine L’Engle about a short story collection by Madeleine, The Moment of Tenderness, released today. The introduction is by Charlotte Jones Voiklis, who is Madeleine L’Engle’s granddaughter and executor of her estate. Madeleine’s books are good for this time, and always.
Another old haiku:
on my desk —
bleeding hearts in bloom
Published first in Time Of Singing (1994). Also reprinted with the poems selected for my Poet Profile at The Haiku Foundation. Billie Wilson was editor then and helped me with my page.
Patience, peace, home
