Poems and Flowers

Karen’s Whimsy

We enjoy buying flower bouquets when we go to a store. As bouquets fade, we create new arrangements.

Karl and I went to Walmart in Sheboygan yesterday, and then enjoyed a meal at home.

Today I am reading from books I ordered from different small presses. I often read book reviews in journals.
