SUNRISE AFTER THE STORM

sunrise
after the storm…
glistening lake-waves
branches coated with ice
and a crow cawing

after the storm
driftwood washes to shore
from other places…
what we let go
what we keep

for my father

Harold A. Borgh, Ph.D (1915 – 1983)

Blue Skies and Books

With the weather this week, I was glad I went to Mead Public Library in Sheboygan on Monday.  Every so often I like to check their new books section, as well as the tables and shelves of special library displays.  I caught myself standing and reading a book, and then realized someone was kindly waiting to look at the books in front of me.   I laughed and apologized, and said, “So many people are here today!” 

blue skies and no wind

glistening in the sun

icebergs

Saturday Sunrise with Hyacinths

 Twenty Degrees

saw the sun
for a moment

now behind
blue-grey clouds
same color
as the water

Lake Michigan calm

a few
birds migrating

North

with the sun…

furnace turns on

fragrance of small

hyacinth

stirs the air

with promise of

Spring
