not always sure and yet I know

not always sure
when one flower
leaves the stage
and another begins
I look up from a page
or from the kitchen window
and purple phlox are gone
daylilies and hosta soon

not always sure
and yet I know
in winter
how gardens
will grow in time
from frozen earth
to snowdrops
lilies and goldenrod

new flowers

new flowers
from a store
in the blue vase
three yellow roses
and three red carnations

one bouquet
and each flower and leaf
has its own space
a painting by the
window on a grey day

Garden Colors

This morning I saw a red cardinal and the yellow forsythia by the garage. This afternoon, the cardinal visited the birch tree branch outside my study window.

POEMS From My Archives

cardinals by a pumpkin

January 7, 2021

colors change
throughout the day

blue jays on branches
in the lilac bush
just beginning

red cardinal in evergreens

almost every day
I wonder what poems
may appear
what I may write

interesting what may
catch my attention

who or what says

“I am the poem this day”

I only know what touches
my heart and soul . . .
