fragrance of leaves

I received the Fall 2019 Time Of Singing, A Journal Of Christian Poetry (TOS).

“fragrance of leaves” was published in this issue.

fragrance of leaves
in the gardens
what good friends
we became
as we grew older

As noted in the journal by Editor Lora Homan Zill, my poem was previously published in They Gave Us Life: Celebrating Mothers, Fathers & Others in Haiku. Edited by Robert Epstein. Middle Island Press, 2017.

two poems

we wait and watch
the train go by
in our small town
memories of my
Swedish grandparents

My grandfather worked on the railroad, and I remember my grandmother’s kitchen!

train lights
and late afternoon
grey sky
Autumn begins
tomorrow
