early June

early June
ferns as tall
as the garden chair

Karl took these beautiful photos of our begonia yesterday.

To appreciate the growth – and we’ve had a lot of rain – here are two Spring photos.

My poem from May 24, 2019:

hosta plants grow
around the ash tree stump
an abundance of health
and new green

as if to say
we knew you would not
last the storm
we are here

there is new beauty now
new hope and a new time

And again today, plus hawkweed after rain in the same area of the yard.

early morning

early morning
and reading
many writers
each time I look
the sky has changed

This summer I am rereading books by Luci Shaw, along with a few poetry journals. Here and there I look at memoirs from thrift stores.

Always the Psalms – a place of stability and hope for me. So much room for growth. Sometimes good to read something new, and sometimes good to reread.
