wildflowers and fields

I remembered a few poems this week, and searched for them in my Archives today.

wildflowers grow
by fields of corn
words of poetry
uplift my soul
keep me strong

Queen Anne’s Lace
along the roads
missing my mother
she somehow
seems near

And I am watching the birch tree in the yard.

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

Two Butterfly Poems

Karl saw a monarch butterfly yesterday, in the yard.

home from mailing
poetry notes
monarch butterfly
greets me
at the back door

A poem from my archives, and reprinted at Poems For Bulletin Boards.

bright sunny day
and steadily they go by . . .
monarchs flying south

As Karl said, “Their epic journey.”

This was September 17, 2014.

August Poems

late summer garden
and the lake in sun
blessings of friendship

late summer
one daylily blooms
in the garden

after the storm
bird on a branch
of the broken tree

Saturday afternoon
yellow flowers
on a table in the sun

late August
and still Summer
bees and goldenrod
by a sunny window
on a quiet morning
