books at stores

books at stores
that sell many things
we need – food, water,
house supplies –
and food for the soul
cheerful cards
plants and flowers
warm places to shop
walk and say hello
support local businesses
in our Sheboygan County
where we are home

I still miss bookstores that existed in years gone by. And then I found books in thrift stores, grocery stores, and of course libraries. Blogs and books, online and print, all a blessing. Karl and I went to a few stores this week. Spring flowers and plants are starting to appear. Next time, I will have to look and see where they are grown.

LETTERS

From my Acrostic Poems page

names and addresses
for dear friends
no longer on earth
old address book

not yet written
in the overflowing book
cards and envelopes
with last known
addresses

still wanting to remember
what may no longer
be current – places I was
people I knew

Time of Singing, Spring 2018

“not yet written” and “still wanting to remember” were also published in All the Way Home: Aging in Haiku (2019). Edited by Robert Epstein. Middle Island Press; West Union, WV.

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow

From my site, Poems From Psalms And Nature

The card is a watercolor painting and gift from Charles A. Waugaman (1932 – 2010). All Rights Reserved. Still Life Arrangement by Ellen. Photo by Karl.

This week, Karl and I went to the Habitat for Humanity store in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. I bought Devotions for Christmas: A Celebration to Bring You Joy and Peace (2016, Zondervan). A beautiful book for one dollar.

Habitat for Humanity â€œWe build strength, stability and self-reliance through shelter.”

Some day, I hope to measure some of the cards and prints in my files, from many years.

Then, when we are at a resale store, we can look for frames.
