February garden

February garden
light on evergreens
covered with snow
I still know the words
from songs long ago

February Creative Notes

The garden is beautiful; with some snow on evergreens, and the fallen branch we left by the old green chair, with a chrysanthemum that bloomed for a time.

I am enjoying my 2023 mini-calendar by Annette Makino, that I bought from her MakinoStudios Etsy shop. “Japanese-inspired art, cards & more by Annette Makino.” The calendar is on the wall near my computer by a collage painting by Wendy Brightbill. agirlandherbrush is Wendy’s Etsy shop.

And I thought I would mention two more journals I have received, to follow my post, winter and grateful.

Time Of Singing goes back a long time. I recently renewed as a Sponsor for Volume 50. Westward Quarterly has also published for a long time.

Just a few of many possible examples to share today . . .

Write about your dream home.

Daily writing prompt

A place, a small study, a garden, books, blogs . . . this time. Prayers.

clouds and blue sky
snow on spruce tree branches
near Lake Michigan

reading Psalms
in the sunroom
fragrance of daffodils

another summer
art on the wall
by someone
long ago still
speaks to me

Thy statutes have been my songs
in the house of my pilgrimage.

Psalm 119: 54 (KJV)
