blessings

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

poetry books
by my chair
a few snowflakes
music and silence

stir-fried vegetables
in olive oil this morning
cookedin mynew
cast iron skillet

all the voicesand designs
colors of fruits and vegetables

verses from Psalm 23 –
He restoreth my soul . . .
my cup runneth over . . .
goodness and mercy . . .

how gentle the wind

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

how gentle the wind
in predawn rose light
after the harvest moon
I begin October
with small and growing hopes
