Month: August 2020

there are poems

there are poems
in the clouds and
sunrise

and light seen
on the garage
from the kitchen

and one yellow leaf
on the birch tree

there are always poems

reading a poem

reading a poem
or two from a new book *
and the sky, wind,
and trees in the yard
almost September

by Ellen Grace Olinger

* The Generosity: Poems by Luci Shaw (2020, Paraclete Press)

Luci Shaw has published two books with Paraclete Press.

Images for today’s post: wpclipart

late August

late August
perennial gardens

all that has been achieved
colors of flowers
past for a time

plants green and rain
all that is present

and will renew
and return
another time
