poem and photo

lunch
at the kitchen table

healthy food
and conversation
about the news
and gardens

then we each work
on other things

April afternoon

April afternoon
a month in Wisconsin
that is not winter
yet not really spring

a bright green cloth bag
holds my library books
until the day we can
return them

they are fine where they are
for as long as necessary
there must be library books
in so many homes

another good connection
to community
and so true that books
are friends as well

ROSE acrostic poem

old roses
now in bloom
a few petals fall
from the blue vase
caught by a poem

Published by SMILE, 2011.

different shapes
of the rose bush
and lilacs in the yard
they grew towards
the light

nothing could be

My poem is from May 2013.

nothing could be
more beautiful
than the trees
and their new leaves
beginning
except for when
they are in full
summer green
and then turn
their autumn colors
and then are their
wise winter selves
waiting for spring
again
