November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally
SMILE, Fall/Winter 2008 – 09
The picture is from November 30, 2011. I wrote “We bought this beautiful poinsettia at Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly Market here in Oostburg last Saturday. Photo by Karl on this blue sky sunny day.”
Creative Note: SMILE, a large print poetry journal, was edited and published by Joyce M. Johnson for years.
