“Ash Tree Management”

When I visited the Town of Holland Sheboygan County – Wisconsin site yesterday, I saw they have “Information about Ash Tree Management in the Town of Holland.”

They link to ROOTS “Restoration of Our Trees – Sheboygan.”

My poem, Seasons, is from October 24, 2019.

SEASONS

once the tree grew tall
before the Emerald Ash Borer
and then a storm

hosta plants
grew green again
around the stump
in Spring

they grew large
and flowered well
so blessed by rain
and a red begonia planter

now there is an
orange pumpkin
on the ash tree stump

and hosta leaves are gold
in the brilliant morning sun

reflection of the lamp
in the window
and evergreens
covered with snow

peaceful blessings
of routine work
and time to read
my reward for a time

poetry journals
and books
by my chair
and on shelves

mandevilla plant
lives in the sunroom now
surely one of the stars
in the yard this year

And so happy we were able to walk by The Sheboygan River at Kiwanis Park again this year (Sheboygan, Wisconsin).
