Wisconsin Photos

Country roads, wildflowers, and corn fields – we reflect upon places we visit in our area. And always good to enjoy our gardens.

Poems 2020 and Photos

new day
in my older life
sun on evergreens

January

far from perfect
and in need of grace
we found our way
to unconditional love

February

March sunrise
shadows of trees
on cedar garage

March

raindrops
robin in a daylily
garden

April

May garden
daffodils bloom
through the night

May

early June
ferns as tall
as the garden chair

June

mid-July
daylilies and hosta
tell the time

July

sunrise . . .
some water
for the chrysanthemum

Accepted for publication in hedgerow: a journal of small poems, edited by Caroline Skanne.

August

grey day
colors of books go well
with art on the walls

September

October days
and November in sight
frost on the ground

October

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

November

work in the kitchen
rice with carrots
and kale

July

time
of daylilies and hosta
July

flowers
begin to form
early July

with all the ways
life can change
still they bloom
every year
daylilies and hosta
