Christmas cactus

Christmas cactus
in new fall sun
seems to receive
the light

with gratitude

if it does not
bloom again
this year

as so many years

these new
green leaves
are more
than enough

light and leaves

On Saturday, Karl and I went to Arabella’s Family Restaurant in Sheboygan, for a good breakfast.  Then we drove around the area.  It was interesting to see how the trees vary in their colors, and the falling of their leaves.

sparrows and evergreens

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

A routine day, the best kind: cooking vegetables, errands, and writing projects.  Madeleine L’Engle taught me to “serve the work,” and that we all do our part.  Maybe that’s why the birds and evergreens speak to me today.  I don’t see the differences in their sizes; I see one painting.

many sparrows play
in evergreen trees
perfect harmony

Flowers, Art, tinywords

Today I stopped at Caan Floral & Greenhouses in Sheboygan.  I had not been there in a long time and bought some flowers.  I was pleasantly surprised to see their gifts by Kelly Rae Roberts.

I believe I learned of Kelly Rae Roberts from Christine Mason Miller and Wendy Brightbill.

So wonderful to see art online also find a presence in stores.  Caan’s is a wonderful place to visit in winter too!

When I came home and checked my email, I learned a new issue of tinywords begins today.
