lilac bushes

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

lilac bushes
with fading leaves
in fall sun

beautiful today

with no worries
about whether or not
they will bloom

again

* * *

Perhaps a meditation on creativity over many years . . . as I have experienced both the fallow and fruitful years.

And So My Soul

Poems From Psalms And Nature

And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again
As the sun spills
Over flowers
And the neighborhood
Sleeps

Endurance is eloquent
And marigolds are
Admirable because
They bloom
So long

Oh, my heart
Is tender
Yet God keeps it
Strong
And so my soul
Spills over
Into print again
