November Wisconsin Countryside

November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally

SMILE, Fall/Winter 2008 – 09

The picture is from November 30, 2011. I wrote “We bought this beautiful poinsettia at Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly Market here in Oostburg last Saturday. Photo by Karl on this blue sky sunny day.”

Creative Note: SMILE, a large print poetry journal, was edited and published by Joyce M. Johnson for years.

two tulips grow

two tulips grow
where the garden
was cleared

we did not plant them

how many years did
they try to grow?

this is their year

and the old hedge
grows again too
