Quiet Christmas Poetry and Time Of Singing

Last year I shared how Karl and I created a large print chapbook from my site, Quiet Christmas Poetry.  The cover photo of the winter Lake Michigan beach is by Karl, and a favorite of readers here for some time.  Our book was printed by GT Graphics in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Under “Book Offers” in the Fall Time Of Singing, Lora Homan Zill, Editor, included a picture of the Christmas book and wrote: “Light and easy to hold, with large print, it is ideal for anyone battling or recovering from serious illness, or who needs a special word of encouragement over the holiday season.”  This was the goal, and we are grateful.

Please see Quiet Christmas Poetry for a picture and the same content is also there for free.

Lora Homan Zill’s site, with a blog, is the blue collar artist.

The large print Christmas book is only for sale at Time Of Singing.  Please see their books page if you wish more information.  All proceeds benefit this print journal.


The WordPress photo challenge this week is TREAT.  I enjoy flowers in the house and yard.





July 2015
Daylilies and hosta are summer here.

Roses are summer too.
These are fragrant and transform a room.




Lilacs and bleeding hearts are from June.


I’m also grateful for flowers from stores.
Karl bought this bouquet last year and took the photos.


Thank you
