A Poem For April

a poem for April
from a small town
by Lake Michigan
our Great Lake
in Wisconsin

not Winter
because of the light
and snowdrops
yet not really
Spring

like the time
when a project
is almost complete
a special day
almost here

New poem today

My post for the Bloganuary prompt for January 14, 2022 was for the prompt, Write about a challenge you faced and overcame. I quoted from the Psalms.

Wait on the LORD:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalm 27: 14

My post also relates to the WordPrompt for April – GREEN.

And Earth Day is April 22.

Errands and Ash Trees

Yesterday, we went to a few places and noted work on ash tree removal in our area. Good to see, so the dying and dead trees do not fall on power lines, roads, and properties. We saw crocuses in bloom. Soon there will be more green in the landscape. I love when the trees first begin to have leaves, and later tiny rows of corn growing perfectly in many fields. The landscape will heal from the loss of the trees, because of the Emerald Ash Borer.

How are you changing the world?

My first thought is about small things that add together, and truly make a difference. Some of my small poems to share today.
