short poems

A second post for the Discover Challenge Obstacles: these are some favorite poems that are gifts from challenging years.  The Discover Challenges are a weekly event at The Daily Post that began this year.

all winter
flowers rested
in the earth
beauty begins
in the heart

*

turning the vase
of flowers
learning
there are
more roses

(published in Bell’s Letters Poet)

*

the years
that were so hard
and yet
they gave me
my stories

Three examples of my haiku are reprinted on a page here on Haiku Prayers – Poetry And Other Art:

Haiku Society Of America Members’ Anthologies.
