three poems

more colors of blue
in Lake Michigan today
than I can name
the wonder of always learning
dreaming new dreams

September
on the horizon
all the goals
I can still
try to reach

Also true that I have revised my goals. Given everything lots of new patience, love, and time. Health first.

Poems and photos are from my archives. I love the grey days as well.

And a new poem:

growing well
the small plant we bought
after my hospital visit in 2018

Take good care.

Winter Morning

The sky is completely grey, and lovely in a quiet way. Snow covers the yard, various branches, and safety railings along the wood and brick paths. I read a few pages, and keep looking outside. So will try and write a page – a post – about what I see.

There are large shapes of ice in Lake Michigan. What a contrast from warm summer days. I keep small blankets – some handmade from thrift stores – nearby.

as if they could
store the sun
small blankets
on a chair
add color to
the scene
as they await
to warm
another time

Time – today is another year since my mother’s passing in 2004. At peace.

For a thousand years in thy sight
are but as yesterday
when it is past,
and as a watch in the night.
Psalm 90: 4 (KJV)

for a time

reading poetry
from books and journals
recently in the mail
and also on my shelves
for a time

and for a different
sense of time

the new sun
on the birch trees
in the back yard
