Juniper

We went to Walmart in Sheboygan today. I admired the juniper growing well in the parklng lot. Karl reminded me of the name.

early morning

early morning
silence on a Saturday
in October

cooked brown rice
with kale to last
a few days

time to organize
some mail and
poetry journals
what to read when
one page at a time

today the sun shines

today the sun shines
after much rain
and I think about
art on the walls
and arrangements
how shapes and colors
work together

and also spaces
with nothing more
like a new journal
or blog post
a page of paper
what may yet
be created?

quiet poems

pink clouds
over Lake Michigan
as I listen to old hymns
my heart gathers peace
for this day

how small the song
of an unknown bird
quiet memories

paintings of trees
on old pine walls
quiet music
