errands

we forgot
the shopping list
and between
the two of us
remembered
almost everything

new growth
on blue spruce trees
Walmart parking lot

new flowers

new flowers
from a store
in the blue vase
three yellow roses
and three red carnations

one bouquet
and each flower and leaf
has its own space
a painting by the
window on a grey day

Garden Colors

This morning I saw a red cardinal and the yellow forsythia by the garage. This afternoon, the cardinal visited the birch tree branch outside my study window.

POEMS From My Archives

time for lunch
cardinals by a pumpkin
in the garden

January 7, 2021

colors change
throughout the day

blue jays on branches
in the lilac bush
just beginning

red cardinal in evergreens

almost every day
I wonder what poems
may appear
what I may write

interesting what may
catch my attention

who or what says

“I am the poem this day”

I only know what touches
my heart and soul . . .

study window – three poems

study window
snow outlines branches
makes their shapes clear

February
view from my study
on the second floor
snow covers branches
makes their shapes clear

reading in my study
many authors over time
then I look up from a page
and can write what I see
