late Fall

I look at my shelves, and what has been there for a time; and I have not read this book or that journal. Then I wonder why – what was happening then? And I remember, and maybe had read a poem or two, or a page or two, and was helped and blessed.

late Fall
and Winter soon
plans for silence
and time to read
poetry

late November

late November
sun fills a glass
for a time

good to create

good to create
when we can
sometimes more
sometimes less
every year different

November Wisconsin Countryside

November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally

sun reaches the painting
adds another layer
