Creativity Over Time

When I write posts that review work over a long time – for example, my post yesterday for the Daily Prompt – it is an encouragement to see creativity over time.

Times I have been unable to write I was still growing as a writer. And someone may have been reading a poem from years ago.

the years
that were so hard
and yet
they gave me
my stories

gifts of silence
and beauty
in the middle
of difficult times
unconditional love
are the stronger
memories now

The seasons are an inspiration.

two poems

cold
Lake Michigan winds
a tiny bird
seeks shelter
by the kitchen window

grey beautiful sky
evergreen trees
and short days
soon to be decorated
with holiday lights

November

As beautiful
as the other months are

and I think of daffodils and
daylilies, and October leaves

there is a special beauty
in November

just now forsythia leaves
are green-yellow, near the
yellow chrysanthemum
on a green chair, and the
old cedar tree and garage

sun fades

sun fades
art on walls
and prints
on bookcases
in frames or
held in place
by some small
treasure

I take care
to preserve
yet also like
the thought
that in a way
each is then
unique to this

time and place

summer garden

summer garden
some work yesterday
we keep the path
to the door clear
rest in an old chair
careful with the sun
and new ideas for
the garden this year
