green and gold
orange lilies
and purple flowers
from a store
Fall colors
along the roads
and some trees
with fallen leaves
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.

and a few moments
to reflect upon
what I read

light for a time
on the birch trees
on a grey day

November begins

November begins
with blue sky
light grey clouds
and evergreen branches
weighted with snow

sunlight and branches
weighted with snow
November begins

Morning Stillness

morning stillness
last day of November

branches create their shapes

with grey sky
and no wind

sun on the water
birds in the sky

This morning, I remembered this verse: But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not from us.
2 Corinthians 4: 7
