sun fades

sun fades
art on walls
and prints
on bookcases
in frames or
held in place
by some small
treasure

I take care
to preserve
yet also like
the thought
that in a way
each is then
unique to this

time and place

October 2019 and April 2015

always 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

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

another summer
art on the wall

long ago still

For my review, I thought “another summer” would follow the previous two poems I posted well: paintings of trees and spruce tree branches.

I also want to mention my Poet Profile at The Haiku Foundation Haiku Registry. I served as a volunteer in Education.

Thank you

2022 Review – I am memorizing the sequence of poems as I create these posts. Perhaps for a chapbook in the next year or two. How do poems from over the years work together? I also hope to remember the journals and editors. And a cover art photo by Karl . . .
