Poems and Flowers

Karen’s Whimsy

We enjoy buying flower bouquets when we go to a store. As bouquets fade, we create new arrangements.

more poems
than I can write
morning work
and then leaves
in light and pine cones
on the spruce tree

Encouragement

how quickly
another generation
grows
seems I only
looked away
for a moment

how good their work
how beautiful their art

These two poems are from my archives.

only now beginning
to find my place and poems
late-blooming rose
from the bush
planted long before
we came here

And what beautiful colors this time of year.

Country roads, wildflowers, and corn fields – we reflect upon places we visit in our area. And always good to enjoy our gardens.
