September Poems

new picture
on my study wall
calendar for September


we wait and watch
the train go by
in our small town
memories of my
Swedish grandparents


A few petunias
snapdragons, gold and white mums
the robins are gone.

Holding in my heart
as days become cold and dark
robins will return.

PEGASUS 1994, and reprinted here 2018.

September leaves
in Sunday sun
prayers of love
and peace
for those in need


bright sunny day
and steadily they go by . . .
monarchs flying south

As Karl said, “Their epic journey.”


to the store
on old beloved roads
light and wind
through fields of corn
birds fly together


pumpkins in the fields
and for sale
Autumn roads


Wisconsin Photos

Country roads, wildflowers, and corn fields – we reflect upon places we visit in our area. And always good to enjoy our gardens.

Storms and Loss of Power

We lost power last night, overnight, and power was restored mid-morning. Otherwise Karl would have set up our generator. This was the second time this summer. We wonder about the many dead ash trees, and have seen work in the general area to remove them. We have lived here a long time, and good to have experience. We have LED lanterns (powered by batteries) and Karl is able to use his cell phone from the second floor. He knows where the cell towers are. So we got updates from the power company. A large area was affected.
