lilac bushes

lilac bushes
with fading leaves
in Fall sun

beautiful today

with no worries
about whether or not
they will bloom

again

Poem from October 2014 – times I can create, times I need to rest and be patient. Good care, one day at a time.

Creative Note: Time Of Singing poetry journal

I am reading poems from Time Of Singing, Volume 48 Number 2, Summer 2021. Lora Homan Zill is the Editor. Ken Gibble is the Contributing Editor for this issue. The photography is by Bobbie Rochow. Wind & Water Press is the publisher, from Conneaut Lake, PA.

These are some of my Fall poems that were published by Time Of Singing (TOS).

how gentle the wind
in predawn rose light
after the harvest moon
I begin October
with small and growing hopes

TOS, Fall 2012

late November
sun fills a glass
for a time

TOS, Fall 2013

my large print Bible
rests on the Thanksgiving tray
the bread of life

reading poetry
my coffee gets cold
guess I made it
for the fragrance

Easter And Spring Poetry

Easter And Spring Poetry is a small site where I am creating some posts for Lent and Easter 2020. Some of your favorite poems are shared again. Last year, I posted there from February to May 2019. I will see what poems I have written since then that may be good to reprint in a new way as well. And perhaps even some new poems!

forms part of a cross
on the wood wall
my faith completes
