Poems and Flowers

Karen’s Whimsy

We enjoy buying flower bouquets when we go to a store. As bouquets fade, we create new arrangements.

Karen’s Whimsy

trimming the stems
of carnations
and giving them
fresh water

early morning

early morning
light on an old painting
in a new place

And I remember an older poem.

rearranging
art on the walls
cards, and small gifts
from friends
I see them anew

afternoon sun

afternoon sun
fills the lamp
on a file cabinet

my study
where I have
read and prayed
through many years

I may read
from a book read
during a difficult time
and now years
have gone by

and I read again
with gratitude
and hope for today
and tomorrow
