Rain: Short Poems

afternoon rain
seagulls on pilings
wait to fly again

rain today
red geraniums
by grey windows

fog and rain
near and far
bird songs

rain and wind
flower petals
on the wood porch

R efresh and renew
A ppreciate plants in all their stages
I nvite new dreams as we age and life changes
N ever without hope

RAIN acrostic poem

Garden Journal Notes

Here are a few examples for March.

early March
snow covers the ground
and it is cold

yet evergreen branches
on tall weathered trees sing
in light morning winds

and tell a different story

March 3, 2016

early Spring
in the yard
near the house
daylilies begin
to grow

March 22, 2019

early morning
and wondering
how best to work
Karl calls to me –
first robin in the yard

March 22, 2021

small snowdrops
continue to bloom
remembrance

Lent begins
and Spring soon
love, hope
and prayers

“Lent begins” is a new poem yesterday at Short Holiday Poems (large print version).

Tree Poems

Poems from my archives, to follow my post Bloganuary prompt for January 30, 2022.

tree farm
young trees grow
alongside the old

grey clouds
and Norway Spruce
tree in the wind
a restful view
Sunday morning

tree branches
bowed to the ground
seemingly half-broken
covered with new leaves
my notebook of prayers

beginning
in the area
where we had
to take a tree down
new peony leaves

many Springs
yellow primroses
near an old tree
