September on the horizon

September
on the horizon
all the goals
I can still
try to reach

This is an older poem, and my thoughts today reflect changes and years.

Good to have goals, and good to be flexible and able to revise. For example, I have made good progress on a draft for a new book. One post at a time, work grows. Then the new work is to make selections. Let things rest, and return with a renewed perspective. And I still like Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014, Elin Grace Publishing; second printing 2017). So perhaps the new book in 2022. Every person’s journey is unique. Take good care.

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.

cross the frontage road
on their own now

Yesterday – plenty of room for them to be safe, with a small forest on the other side.

This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

water
for the begonia

and hosta petals
on the lawn

small vase of daylilies
for the sunroom

goldenrod grows tall
above the windowsill

bees, butterflies, and
hummingbirds visit
by the windows
