Art, Poems, Hope

Every morning, I look forward to seeing and reading poetry. I began this post yesterday.

sometimes
the window
frames a picture

and other times
one small branch
is the poem –
ever green and a blue
background

Photos I select may reflect today, or look forward, or may be art that I simply think others would enjoy as well. An artist may be just beginning to publish, or may have a few followers or a thousand or more. Sometimes I can see that someone is staying with a theme, and trying new ideas. Or I can see how different artists create with similar themes.

For now, words are the major part of my days. And I have other ideas if I ever cannot read and write. Creativity will always be there in some form. Always hope.

There are new study window and kitchen window poems here every day. Some get written. So many ways to be creative. Thank you.

Published in SMILE (Spring 2011).

late afternoon sun
shines into my little
study longer
another Spring

a new river of
poems begins to flow
as I grow older
still reading by natural light
late afternoon sun

EASTER DINNER

for my mother

The background is red
her hair has become silver
and her dress is rust.
Her smile these days is pure gold
and her eyes sparkle anew.

Published first in Time of Singing, 1993.

And I will add this poem from January 2016.

another year
has passed since
my mother’s passing
I sit and quietly read
a book she would like too
