August begins

August begins
and I remember
poems

rarely at your grave —
geranium blooms freely
on your workshop stool

autumn leaves
the caregiver finds time
to rest

sometimes

I reread a few poems
by different poets,
and remember
when I read them before

or listen to a few songs
from different albums
and artists, and remember
when I listened before

and new meaning today


Creative Note: Books

We went to the Bethesda Wisconsin – Sheboygan Thrift Shop. I mostly looked at art and books. I bought two books. A wonderful store. I can always donate back or give to another person or thrift store, after I read.

Yesterday a new book arrived. Karl asked if I wanted to add anything to an order from Amazon.

The new book is a glimpse of water fall, poems and drawings by Jane Tims. Fredericton, April 2021. Published by Kindle Direct Publishing.

I first learned of Jane’s work from her site, nichepoetryandprose “poetry and prose about place.”
