November begins

Karl and I went to Walmart in Sheboygan today. The temperature was just a little above freezing this morning. Good to buy fresh food and also canned soups and other supplies. November has a special beauty. Lunch at the kitchen table, and carrot cake from the store. I like that we can buy a small portion and share. Then we each have our own work under the same roof. Grateful.

afternoon sun
fills the lamp
on a file cabinet

my study
where I have
read and prayed
through many years

I may read
from a book read
during a difficult time
and now years
have gone by

and I read again
with gratitude
and hope for today
and tomorrow

Creative Note: Poems From Psalms And Nature

This week, I wrote three new poems at Poems From Psalms And Nature. The theme is “Grateful Today.”

with art we can keep
what may seem lost
create with faith
the best we can

gifts to receive
and then let go
only for a time

plants and flowers
through the seasons

how welcome the snowdrops
in Spring – daffodils, tulips
and primroses

Summer in our yard
offers daylilies, hosta, goldenrod
hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees

chrysanthemums, coneflowers,
and asters – how wonderful
to grow so well when so much
is past for the year
