The sky and Lake Michigan (water and beach) are always changing.
Seawall was built when the water was high.

Quiet Christmas Poetry
(the website has the same poems
and Bible verses as the large print book)
The photos in this post are from my garden journal this past week.
I’ve been listening to December by George Winston.
This morning I read Jim Kacian’s post: The Haiku Foundation 2015 Fundraiser. There is a lot of interesting content planned, over the next several days, so best for me to simply share the post. I look forward to learning more.
I began reading at THF daily in early 2012, and always learn something new. With Jim Kacian as editor, I helped begin their Education Resources Feature as a volunteer. We published in 2013, and this work has surely grown. The haiku lessons are free.
The Haiku Foundation is non-profit.

The book includes Bible verses, acrostics, haiku, and tanka.

Under “Book Offers” in the Fall 2015 issue of Time Of Singing, Lora Homan Zill, Editor, included a picture of the Christmas book and wrote: “Light and easy to hold, with large print, it is ideal for anyone battling or recovering from serious illness, or who needs a special word of encouragement over the holiday season.” This was the goal, and we are grateful.

Carol Purington’s classic book, Family Farm: Haiku for a Place of Moons, is back in print. For more information, please read this post at the Woodslawn Farm website.
I wrote a Customer Review for this book on Amazon in 2013.
I’ve had some large goals in my life, and now I see more of the beauty close to the ground. This is a good place. I still have dreams, and work with others to achieve; trust the process.
