Creative Note: Posts

It is interesting to see which posts seem to be read and reread.

My Bloganuary posts are an example. If you missed a post, and are interested, you can see my Archive for Month: January 2023.

Acrostic Poem For READING from April 16, 2010 continues to be the “most popular post.”

I postponed plans for a new book last year. Perhaps a simple book for my acrostic poems, with Karl’s photos, is the next step.

Spring Takes Time

Spring takes time here, and grateful to be able to watch for all the changes.

I am reading Winter Morning Walks: one hundred postcards to Jim Harrison, by Ted Kooser (Carnegie Mellon University Press Pittsburgh 2000). You can visit The Official Website of Poet: Ted Kooser, Supported by The University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

And I created some posts at Easter And Spring Poetry, and hope to write and design more this year.

April is National Poetry Month, and there are a few posts at Poems For Bulletin Boards. Readers are welcome to reprint my poems with credit for the site.

Newly Fallen Snow

newly fallen snow
rich on fields and gardens

summers of drought
inspire gratitude
for this deep blanket

to soak the soil
when it thaws

a lightness in the air
branches of evergreens
sway gently

nature knows
spring is a month away

Poem from February 22, 2010
