Sunday morning poems

calm weather
still life arrangement
with quiet Fall colors

gold leaves
and evergreens
what changes
and what stays
the same

October 4, 2021Grief And Acceptance

If you follow more than one of my sites, you know that I like to reprint poems in different ways; and try new ideas with design, colors, and images. As I review my archives, I may see that I can edit a poem better. I also reblog posts, and you are welcome to reblog too.

Large Print Poems is now in its second year. I place these posts in all kinds of Categories and Tags, including Assisted Living, Nursing Homes, Education, Language Arts, Photography, and Libraries. This is a free resource that is growing slowly. Sometimes large print is best for me now as well.

Perhaps on some Sunday mornings, I can review the week in a post here. The blogs bring together my experience over years. Times I have been away – and then so easy to begin again here when the time is right. One step at a time.

Thank you and blessings,
Ellen Grace Olinger

today the sun shines

today the sun shines
after much rain
and I think about
art on the walls
and arrangements
how shapes and colors
work together

and also spaces
with nothing more
like a new journal
or blog post
a page of paper
what may yet
be created?

yard work

water
for the begonia

and hosta petals
on the lawn

small vase of daylilies
for the sunroom

goldenrod grows tall
above the windowsill

bees, butterflies, and
hummingbirds visit
by the windows
