Lilacs: Photos and Short Poems

early March
snow on lilacs
lands in the shape
of the flowers
that will bloom soon

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

old lilacs in fog
promises of God
still holding true

where once
I mourned
lilacs

knowing
they cannot stay
but will return
lilacs

Photos and poems are by Ellen Grace Olinger.

I took the photo of the leaves yesterday.  The flowers have been past for some time, and I want to also appreciate the green now.  And remember in the winter.  The poems are from my archives.
