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

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

summer evening

summer evening
quiet music and
a few Psalms
new evergreen growth
still in the sun

The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 74: 16-17 (KJV)

trees

reading poems
by Ted Kooser
and I look again
at the trees
and some years
were hard and also
the new growth
in today’s sun
and they are beautiful

Poem by Ellen Grace Olinger today.

early morning

early morning
when I wrote a post
and late afternoon
when I read poetry
and listened to music
robin on the branch
by the same window

I look for the small gifts every day. This morning, I thought an idea for a summer 2022 series might be to simply note a few of these blessings.
