brown ferns
and daylily leaves
rest on the ground
in autumn sun
late September yard

Creative Note: Today I reached 50 Posts at Large Print Poems. Hope the site is a helpful resource. It seems to be growing well.


blue sky
green leaves on trees
and evergreens
orange daylilies

a few stores
face masks
and social distance
easy to say hello
and smile with our eyes
wash hands when we
return home and often

Petals On Wood

The daylilies in the vase
Are ending

       Petals drop on wood

I leave them
They express something poignant

       That words never could.

“Petals On Wood” was published in ARTS ALIVE:  A LITERARY REVIEW (1988, The Tinley Park – Park District; Illinois).
