Creative Note: Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

Happy Summer, from the Midwest, USA.  I enjoy following the seasons around the world.

For new readers here, my primary blog is Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin.

The garden is growing, and you are welcome to visit my Oostburg, Wisconsin site.  Yesterday, I saw rose petals on the ferns.

I’ll repost some of the photos I took yesterday – my haiku photos.

Daily Prompt: Blossom

each flower
a star for a time
daylilies

where once
I mourned
irises

Blossom

This is a poem from late September 2015:

Their Flowers Past

their flowers past
for a time and
as I return home
from the grocery store
the beauty of the plants
reaches my soul
for I too have kept
faith to flower
as I can

and grateful
to rest again
for a time

Grateful for the seasons,

Ellen Grace Olinger
