seasons speak

seasons speak
their own language
cold days here
and yet the light
tree branches
in wind and February
next week . . .
reading poetry
and more light
falls on journals
across the room
to read and reread

Bloganuary prompt for January 17, 2022

What is a superpower you’d love to have?

birds perch
in sheltering branches
a grain of mustard seed

Matthew 13: 31 – 32

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

morning prayer
water birds flying north
stay close to water

breakfast and music
when a song begins
I know the words
Amazing Grace

far from perfect
and in need of grace
we found our way
to unconditional love

“birds perch” was published in Time Of Singing (1995).

“morning prayer” was published in Take-out Window: Haiku Society of America 2014 Members’ Anthology, edited by Gary Hotham. My haiku was first published in SMILE, 67, 2010.

I like how the prompts and questions vary. Thank you to the editors at WordPress.com. This question is one I am not qualified to answer!

Then I thought some vintage images from Reusable Art – Breathing New Life Into Old Art would create a nice post today. You can learn more at Reusable Art. The content at the site goes back to the 1300s. There are many categories.

December begins

December begins
the month here
that begins with Fall
and later becomes Winter

reflections of the year
everyday work
and projects that
can wait

Many readers enjoyed the photos of birds from my post, Almost December. Here are two more, from the WordPress.com free photo library.
