Signs of Spring

the trail looks the same today

brown colors of early Spring
some snow and there may
be more in our Wisconsin April

yet the sounds tell more of the story

bird songs again
and now
for the first time this year

we hear frogs sing
from ponds in fields

the trail is more alive today

Poem by Ellen Grace Olinger

Poem and Photos

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow

From my site, Poems From Psalms And Nature

Used books sometimes bring personal notes with them, or simply the name of the person who owned the book. I also like how a book that once belonged to a library has that history. Perhaps a book was discarded/sold to make room on the shelves, and had not been borrowed for a time. Now the book continues its journey in another way.

afternoon light

afternoon light
in my small study

shines on small gifts
from my mother
and aunt that I placed
on file cabinets today

a small gesture
that recalls their homes
and brings comfort
to my soul

listened to music
I’ve known for years

poetry books from friends

these many gifts
of each day
