Autumn Memories

poems written
in a notebook
a post and perhaps
published again
years later

autumn garden
with the light and rest
some work complete
and always more to do
a new season begins

autumn memories
my mother often quoted
from literature she knew well
the Psalms, Shakespeare, novels
and even later when others
may not have understood
I knew what she was saying

Ellen Grace Olinger

always poems

there are poems
in the clouds and
sunrise

and light seen
on the garage
from the kitchen

and one yellow leaf
on the birch tree

there are always poems

WestWard Quarterly, Winter 2021

2022 Review – I am memorizing the sequence of poems as I create these posts. Perhaps for a chapbook in the next year or two. How do poems from over the years work together? I also hope to remember the journals and editors. And a cover art photo by Karl . . .

wildflowers and fields

I remembered a few poems this week, and searched for them in my Archives today.

wildflowers grow
by fields of corn
words of poetry
uplift my soul
keep me strong

Queen Anne’s Lace
along the roads
missing my mother
she somehow
seems near

And I am watching the birch tree in the yard.

there are poems
in the clouds and
sunrise

and light seen
on the garage
from the kitchen

and one yellow leaf
on the birch tree

there are always poems
