late May garden

late May garden
in the early morning
a time I know well
colors of primroses
and forget me nots
ferns grow tall

today

plants grow
in the gardens
gifts from those
who were here before
and bless today

Lilacs: Four Poems

Karen’s Whimsy

I wonder
what today’s poem may be
lilacs in the wind

memories of neighbors
and their gardens
lilacs

knowing
they cannot stay
but will return
lilacs

ancient lilacs
cover the graves
