Spring takes time

Spring takes time
by Lake Michigan
and was an adjustment
when we first moved here

I saw Spring flowers first
at my mother’s home
and then later here
further North and East

each bird and flower now
an event and gift

New poem today, and a few Spring 2022 poems so far, to see the progress:

Norway Spruce tree
covered with snow

March 31, 2022

early April
and warm enough
for rain

April 2, 2022

last week in April
and music is new
bird songs

April 25, 2022

May afternoon
some time outside
without my warm coat

May 13, 2022

every day a gift



in early May
tiny bird sings
on the branch
of budding lilacs


along the roads
marsh marigolds


another summer
art on the wall
by someone
long ago still
speaks to me


Karen’s Whimsy

Poem and Photos

cold day
yet bright sun
and no wind
we go to Sheboygan
one way and drive home
another way
beloved roads

We went by the Greenwing Drive retention ponds, and I recalled photos by Karl.
