more colors of blue

more colors of blue
in Lake Michigan today
than I can name
the wonder of always learning
dreaming new dreams

last Sunday in June
knitting with yarn
the color of blueberries

mid-August
blueberries on sale
from Canada now

Poem and Creative Notes

driving home
on different roads
and streets

these trees are taller

I remember places
that only exist in photos
and memories now

and then
the beauty

of today

Ellen Grace Olinger

I searched this site to see if I had published this poem before, and I rediscovered this Guest Post by Carol Purington (April 6, 2017). Her tanka are wonderful. The phrase in common is “driving home.”

You can visit Carol Purington at Woodslawn Farm, and read her new post there for March 2019.

on old roads
on a cold day
