more poems
than I can write
morning work
and then leaves
in light and pine cones
on the spruce tree

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

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

Poems About Snowdrops And Daffodils

gardens in winter
the serene snowfall
and remembering
where snowdrops
will bloom

January 2011

soon the garden
will begin in small ways
snowdrops

March 2019

blue sky
with cotton clouds
snowdrops

March 2010

reading Psalms
in the sunroom
fragrance of daffodils

March 2015

all the more yellow
because of grey skies
daffodils
forsythia
dandelions

May 2011

sunrise
daffodils bowed by rain
recover

May 2016

leaving them be
fragrance of faded
daffodils in a glass

June 2015

And a poem from February 2015:

blue grey sky
and water
a light grey

sun bright
through
evergreens

this new day

mid-July

mid-July
plants on sale at stores
wait for new homes

today

mid-July
summer seems
to go faster now
all the more reason
to sit still a little more
