Saturday morning

Saturday morning
day begins early
and in a quiet way
from prayers to plans
for kitchen work today

And I remember this poem:

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

2022 Review – I am memorizing the sequence of poems as I create these posts. Perhaps for a chapbook in the next year or two. How do poems from over the years work together? I also hope to remember the journals and editors. And a cover art photo by Karl . . .

Spring to Summer

So much green, seems to be a good year for the spruce tree near the ash tree stump and hosta plants, and the seawall by Lake Michigan.

It is interesting to look at the overall designs for music CDs and print books. So many ways to create. The editors and publishers support and help the writers, and all are artists. I read a few more credits, consider the sequence of songs and/or poems, and the works as a whole. How was this achieved? Can take some time to begin to learn a new work by a favorite artist. And always learning, always grateful.

Charlotte Digregorio published this poem for the Daily Haiku: November 8, 2018. It was her good idea to create a senryu from one of my tanka.

I will share both poems in this post, so you can read both versions. The poems go well with the new year soon, and the themes of my blog.
