Fragrance of Leaves

fragrance of leaves
in the gardens
what good friends
we became
as we grew older

And also published in a print book, print journal, and online.

As I review, I am grateful to see how some poems I wrote for Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin have been reprinted by journals (print and online), books, and other sites. Thank you for your feedback and encouragement, and also thank you to the editors and publishers. This is one example, and I will add more in future posts.

reading haiku
the generous new growth
of evergreens

loved for years
and now I know your name
blue chicory

wearing
my old sweater
worn thin
Queen Anne’s Lace
along country roads
